Until now, you and your patients had very few choices for people with indications like incomplete spinal cord injury, weakness or paresis of the quadriceps, and post-polio syndrome. Now, instead of settling for a locking joint, you can fit the Ottobock C-Brace® system.

Among the many benefits, patients most value the ability to change speeds, to walk with controlled knee flexion, and to move more efficiently. In daily life, that means a walk in the park can be just that. A patient can trust their knee to support them on all types of terrain, and they can spend their energy and attention enjoying the day. This dramatic increase in function is possible through real-time gait analysis and goes far beyond simply locking and unlocking the knee joint. Patients experience support throughout the gait cycle as the system automatically adjusts to prepare for the next movement.

Key features

  • Stumble Control: Resistance to uncontrolled knee flexion when sensors read a moment of instability gives the time necessary to recover.
  • Real-Time Gait Analysis: Every period of gait in the gait cycle is controlled dynamically and in real time, allowing the patient to walk with more ease and less concentration — with less compensation of the sound side and torso.
  • Standing and 2nd Mode: Additional modes allow for comfortable static standing and additional settings (for therapy or other activities).
  • Stance Extension Damping: Progressive resistance allows natural movement to occur without uncontrolled and early knee and hip extension at Terminal Stance, resulting in a more natural movement without abrupt changes to the center of gravity, lower back and lower limb joints.
  • Stance Flexion Damping: Controlled, partial knee flexion while weight bearing allows the patient to exhibit knee control when walking down hills and ramps, descending stairs step over step, and while sitting down into a chair.
