RHEO KNEE® XC comes with the Össur Logic App

RHEO KNEE® XC comes with Össur Logic software, which enables professionals to easily adjust the functionality for each user and access valuable activity reports.

In addition to checking knee status and battery charge level, the new, enhanced user mode offers access to a specially designed training program. The Össur Logic training feature supports clinicians to empower users, providing easy exercises that can be done in rehab and subsequently at home, at a pace to suit the individual. Helping to improve confidence and gait, the exercises include symmetric weight bearing, rolling over the toe, more symmetric sitting down and stair descent.

The Össur Logic App is available free of charge in the App Store, for devices with iOS 9.0 and subsequent releases.

For Prosthetists / Medical Professionals

We do things differently. That’s why, while other leading microprocessor knees still employ traditional hydraulic solutions, RHEO KNEE XC features the cutting-edge, highly-responsive magnetorheologic technology popularized by the aerospace and automotive industries. And that makes all the difference.

With RHEO KNEE XC you can choose not just a product, but a full solution tailored to each individual user profile.

For the most dynamic experience for users returning to their daily activities, we recommend RHEO KNEE XC with Pro-Flex® and Iceross Seal-In.

Pro-Flex combines nearly double the range of motion and energy return of a conventional carbon fiber foot with a more natural center of pressure. This is the ideal combination for people who want to enhance their mobility and return to regular activities and to a dynamic lifestyle.

For the most demanding users, we recommend RHEO KNEE XC in combination with Pro-Flex® XC

Pro-Flex XC provides exellent vertical compression, all terrain compliance and toe-off energy for active users who enjoy hiking and jogging in addition to level-ground walking. Add Unity® elevated vacuum for excellent volume control and suspension, with minimal added weight and no added build height.
