The technical stuff

Mauch hydraulic cylinder technology simulates the natural movement of the knee joint. Pressurized hydraulic fluid acts on a piston inside the cylinder to deliver controlled linear motion throughout the different phases of walking (stance and swing). As soon as weight is put on the knee, consistent and secure support is provided. At the end of each stride, the knee automatically goes into swing motion to enable the user to step forward smoothly.

State of the art components contribute to the Mauch Knee’s fluid motion and durability, while tiny extension stoppers prevent it from extending too far when stepping forward. The knee has a strong aluminum frame that is protected with rubber covers, front and back. It weighs 2.5lbs / 1140g.

Strong, versatile and efficient.

If you think the Mauch Knee could be the ideal knee for you, discuss it as an option with your prosthetist.
