Stance control knee brace: E-MAG Active
Matching your moves
Responsive and stable
As your body changes, your walking abilities fluctuate, too. If your walking pattern or “gait” changes, the E-MAG Active can be recalibrated by your orthotist to accommodate your needs. And, unlike traditional braces, the E-MAG Active doesn’t require you to lock and unlock it while walking, and and you can easily unlock it to sit down.
The knee joint lock and unlocks for easier walking, and you can unlock it to be seated.
In addition to automatic locking and unlocking, you can manually unlock the knee for activities like bicycling or physical therapy.
Knows just where you are
A gyroscope monitors the position of your leg to signal the joint to unlock at the right moment – so your leg can swing freely forward.
What you need to know
Benefits for you
The E-MAG Active electromagnetic stance control orthosis acts as an active walking partner, not just a static support. Even better, it doesn't just come "one size fits all". As part of the fitting and training, your orthotist will calibrate the E-MAG Active to you and your physical abilities.
When stability matters
Being able to think about your activities – not whether your brace is locked – delivers stability and peace of mind.
Calibration – Now and later
If you are recovering from an injury or temporary mobility limitation, the E-MAG Active can evolve with you as your abilities change.
With you every step
The E-MAG Active is calibrated to your needs, and throughout your walking motion – or phase of gait. The sensor integrated into the electronics uses data to unlock the knee joint at the right point in your gait. Learn more about stance control benefits.
