Benefits at a glance

CPO explains that the Prosedo knee supports safe sitting-down through a high resistance

High degree of safety

The Prosedo is the worlds’s first semi-automatic locking knee with an adjustable hydraulic cylinder. This hydraulic cylinder supports safe sitting-down through a high resistance once the lock is disengaged. Suitable for amputees with lower mobility, the Prosedo provides secure and comfortable wearing.

Confidence due to more balance

When walking, the Prosedo knee joint is locked in extension, however for sitting down the lock is able to be disengaged via the lock release cable. Unlocking is possible under partial load, resulting in more balance and safety. An even weight distribution can be maintained – on both the sound and prosthetic limb – when unlocking the knee joint to sit down.

The knee enables Elisabeth to distribute her body weight equally on the sound and the amputated side.

Stability thanks to individually adjustable hydraulic

The integrated hydraulic unit stabilises wearers when the lock is disengaged and actively supports them in the process of sitting down. When sitting down, the knee enables the wearer to distribute their body weight equally on the sound and amputated side, providing relief and security. The resistance is individually adjustable, according to the wearer’s weight and needs.

Meeting the patients’ needs

The Prosedo knee is able to be fitted to transfemoral, knee disarticulation and hip disarticulation patients. Prosedo’s high maximum weight level of 125kg, the small and lightweight design and two connector versions make the knee joint suitable for many amputees, including those with long residual limbs.
