More Knee Unit Responses

Janette Morris

And the responses just keep on coming….

Thank you!
——————-
Try the ottobock 4-bar polycentric knee
disarticulation knee. Its rated
for
275 (although the book still says less). Call them to
confirm.
———————–
The Hosmer Spectrum is a pneumatic 4-bar knee. It
might be nice for a
longer limb length with good voluntary control because
it is somewhat
“triggered” in nature. I does not have a stance lock
and features easy
movement.
————————–
I WOULD LOOK AT THE TOTAL KNEE FROM 21ST
CENTURY(OSSUR).
—————————-
Bauerfeind Prosthetics distributes the Proteval
Pneumatic 4-bar knee
which
is rated up to 265 lbs with medium activity levels.
The Senior Plus features an easily adjustable
pneumatic swing phase
control
and a very slim knee profile at 90 degrees of flexion.
The unit weighs
880
grams and has a total length of about 11 inches with
proximal adapter.

We would be glad to send you more information on this
system. You can
reach
us at 800-626-2612
—————————
I would recomend the Century XXII Total Knee. You can
get it in a
hydrolic
or pneumatic version. You have many different
proximal connection
configuarations to choose from. You can purchase it
through Ossur.
————————–
you may want to try the century hydraulic knee, i use
them and they are great, they have stance flexion
feature, and an optional extension assist.. the knee
is also a 4 bar
