New freedom of movement

Walking slowly or quickly, on inclines or rough terrain, avoiding tripping situations, walking down stairs step-over-step, or flexing the leg under a load: the C-Brace® lets users experience an entirely new freedom of movement.

Small and lightweight

The new C-Brace® is small enough to be worn inconspicuously under clothing. Because it’s lightweight, the user expends less effort while walking.

Enhanced safety while walking

The C-Brace® enhances safety by responding in real time, including in possible tripping situations: the user can step or sit down with the knee flexed and walk on uneven terrain or slopes.

App control for user and technician

Users can conveniently control their C-Brace® with the Cockpit app, for example when switching to cycling mode. The Orthotist uses the Setup app to individually adjust the C-Brace® in simple steps.

Dynamic movement patterns

The new sensor technology makes the C-Brace® even more intuitive to use; movement patterns are even more dynamic and responsive.

Simplified fabrication process

The C-Brace is custom made for each unique user - and can even be made to accommodate heavy duty users. To find out more about the C-Brace or to book an assessment, please contact Dorset Orthopaedic.

Functionality

The C-Brace® consists of individually fabricated thigh, calf and foot components. An ankle joint (unilateral or bilateral fitting) or an individual spring element connects the foot and calf components. The sensor system continuously measures the flexion of the knee joint and its angular acceleration. This lets the C-Brace® detect the user’s current walking phase, so it can regulate the hydraulic resistances as well as control the flexion and extension of the knee joint.
