WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
IN YOUR FITTING
Preparing for your fitting is a great way to make sure time with your prosthetist is used well. Knowing what a typical Power Knee fitting includes may help but your appointment will be unique to you.
NOW THE REAL WORK BEGINS
The day of fitting is exciting, as is going home with a new prosthesis. But it doesn’t end there. Practicing skills, focusing on mobility goals, and remaining motivated are all part of getting the most out of a device. With the actively powered Power Knee, momentum builds as you discover how the knee helps power your day.
