MyModes – for even more everyday flexibility
MyModes: Complementing your prosthesis perfectly
Ottobock’s mechatronic prostheses open up a broad spectrum of possibilities for users. If you wear a C-Leg 4 or Genium knee joint, you can benefit from the unique option of using additional settings called MyModes, which supplement the tailored basic settings. You can use the MyModes to make your joint’s functions even more individual and adapt them to your own daily routine.
Flexible during work and leisure thanks to MyModes
Together with your O&P professional, you determine which settings will provide the best support for your lifestyle according to your needs and preferences. It doesn’t matter whether you choose pre-settings that suit your recreational sports activities or that support recurring tasks you carry out as part of your work routine. Whether you’re moving from the lifting platform to a mechanic’s creeper or from the beach bar to a surfboard – you can switch from one mode to another in no time. Individual MyModes can also be helpful during prosthesis training with your therapist.
Control prosthesis functions yourself
You can control the functions either by using the app on your Android-based smartphone, with a remote control or by programming simple movement patterns. You decide how you want to switch between your preset modes on a day-to-day basis.

Frequently asked questions regarding MyModes
MyModes are settings which can be saved in your mechatronic knee joint in addition to the basic mode. You determine the values you want together with your clinician so he or she can programme them in the joint software. You can switch between the settings as often as you want once your technician has saved the MyModes for you.
The Genium X3, Genium and C-Leg 4 mechatronic knee prostheses feature this unique option which allows individual movement patterns to be set in advance.
For the C-Leg 4, your clinician can save two further MyModes in addition to the basic mode, and up to five MyModes of your choice can be set for the Genium and Genium X3 knee joints.
You can switch between the respective MyModes in no time using the Cockpit app for your Android-based smartphone. The same naturally applies when you want to return to basic mode. If you don’t happen to have your smartphone with you, you can can also set the desired mode with the supplied remote control or by rocking on the forefoot several times.
No, not at all. While some users use the pre-settings for sports activities such as cycling, golf or surfing, others choose settings that benefit their working lives, such as the special position a car mechanic needs to assume while repairing a motor. MyModes are used to define the function required for an activity, which can in turn be beneficial in a wide variety of everyday situations.
