The Allux knee is the only 4-Bar microprocessor knee to control both swing and stance phase, providing a smooth and natural gait. Additionally, the 4-Bar linkage allows the distance from knee center to toe to shorten during the swing phase, which increases toe clearance and greatly reduces the risk of stumbling.
The 4-Bar linkage also allows for more comfortable sitting by folding under itself when seated, which provides a more natural sitting position.
Safety is a high priority with the Allux knee. In addition to increased toe clearance, the Allux knee also constantly monitors the knee position and movement to allow it to respond to any abnormal situations. For example, if the prosthesis becomes stuck on something during its swing phase, it will immediately increase resistance which helps to prevent the knee from buckling.
This knee also offers an industry-leading range of motion with 180º flexion. This offers you a greater range of motion than any other microprocessor knee available, which is especially beneficial for activities such as biking, changing shoes, or kneeling.
Using the associated app, you can easily switch modes and check the battery level of your prosthetic. With a battery life that lasts four days and a charge time of only 3 hours, you get to enjoy minimal downtime and more time enjoying your days.
