A perfect balance of stability and dynamics

RHEO KNEE 3 incorporates tried, tested and proven technology, along with a number of improvements to make life that little bit easier.

Stable enough for Ellie...

RHEO KNEE 3 offers increased and smoother resistance across a wider range of stance flexion.

This enhanced support from heel strike to toe off helps increase the confidence of all users on varied terrain, ramps and stairs.

This is especially reassuring to lower activity users like Ellie.

..dynamic enough for Tim.

We didn't sacrifice the swing dynamics that the RHEO KNEE is known for and that higher active users like Tim expect.

In fact, we improved them! By further reducing swing phase resistance, we made it even easier for higher activity users to walk their way and lower activity users to initiate swing.

Now, whether he is cycling, hiking, or working in the garage, Tim feels he "wastes" less energy getting around.

Dynamic gait with added confidence

RHEO KNEE 3 helps users to feel in control at all times and takes confidence to a whole new level:

  • Feel totally confident and safe, even on stairs, ramps and uneven ground
  • Change speed and direction with absolute ease
  • Move more naturally, even in confined spaces
  • Think less about what to do and how best to move
  • Walk farther, using less energy, and maintain an active lifestyle

The bonus for the average user is that it is ultra stable, while the more active person will benefit from the extra functionality.

"RHEO KNEE 3 is so stable and easy to walk on, and now I can ride it down ramps and stairs"

RHEO KNEE's Gait Cycle

Inital Contact to Mid Stance

  • Generates optimal knee resistance, d on cadence and gait
  • Increased comfort and confidence of support across walking speeds.

Late Stance to Pre Swing

  • Easy and effortless swing initiation.
  • Enables smooth and natural walking in confined spaces, such as crowds or in the kitchen.
  • Ideal for low-to-moderate K2 walkers.

Mid Swing

  • Minimal swing phase resistance and immediate response to speed changes.
  • Automatic Stumble Recovery provides knee support to help users regain balance.
  • Helps reduce trips and falls, enhancing user confidence.
  • Super responsive and keeps up with speed changes like no hyraulic cylinder can.

Terminal Swing

  • Automatically adjusts swing resistance as walking speed varies.
  • No excessive terminal impact regardless of walking speed.
