Improvements in Clinical Outcomes using four-bar, polycentric knees compared to monoaxial knees

  • Increased mean prosthetic minimum toe clearance2,4, reducing the likelihood of tripping.
  • Fully satisfies stance phase stability3
  • Acceptable cosmetics for knee disarticulation amputees and trans-femoral amputees with long residua1
  • Meets all the design requirements for paediatric patients3
