The microprocessor prosthetic leg that started a revolution
What you need to know
Advantages for you
Stop worrying about falls
With its sensors, C-Leg knows when you’re in an insecure position. During a trip or stumble, it increases resistance to provide the support you need to recover before you fall.
Stability and flexibility
No matter the terrain or your speed, the C-Leg is always thinking about security, so you don’t have to. You can speed up, slow down, and go down stairs step‑over‑step with the assurance that the C-Leg is there for you.
Multiple modes for multiple activities
You’ve got more than one speed – so does C-Leg! The C-Leg offers two activity modes, set by your prosthetist at your request. You can program for your most common activities, such as specific job tasks or riding a bike.
Stand at ease
C-Leg’s standing mode gives you support with your knee flexed between 7º and 70º. Just by having that flex, you’ll find you use less energy while standing. Washing dishes or standing in line is suddenly more comfortable.
Getting your prosthetic leg into motion is easy with the support from a C-Leg microprocessor. The smooth, natural start to your “swing phase” gives you the freedom and control you need to meet the challenges of your everyday life.
Every step is smooth and secure
Choose one of the Triton feet or Trias foot from Ottobock to complete your C-Leg system:
- the lightweight Triton carbon fiber foot with exceptionally smooth control;
- the Triton Vertical Shock (VS) with great shock absorption in a compact design;
- the Triton Harmony® with integrated vacuum technology;
- the Triton Heavy Duty, robust and waterproof, for particularly challenging conditions), or
- the Triton Low Profile, with especially low structural height for those who need the extra room.
Stability and function in the palm of your hand
Switching between activity modes is easy by pressing the wireless remote control or bouncing on the toe.
C-Leg has been the subject of more peer-reviewed, published clinical studies than any other microprocessor knee in history. No other microprocessor knee on the market comes close to C-Leg’s record of results.
How the C-Leg works
How the C-Leg Works
The innovative C-Leg was designed to reproduce the functions of a biological leg. Click here to see a video about how the C-Leg's microprocessor-controlled hydraulic system performs throughout your walking pattern (gait cycle) to give you stability and control.
