Harmony between Security and Fluidity.
The Symphony is a six-bar polycentric knee designed for patients who need both safety and dynamics. It orchestrates the phases of the gait cycle to offer a harmonious solution with security, comfort, and fluidity. The p-MRS system mechanically detects the different gait phases and adapts stability accordingly. At heel strike, the system locks the knee geometrically and cushions with a stance flexion dampening feature. The selective lock function enables the patient to lock the knee manually whenever security is needed. At the preswing phase, the Symphony unlocks for an effortless switch to swing phase.
