Benefits at a glance
Free your mind
Thanks to the newly updated, unique technology, the Genium enables a gait that’s even more natural. Added support is provided by adjustment possibilities that can make walking on ramps or sitting down easier.
An excellent long-term fitting
Additional functions can help adapt the prosthesis to your everyday life. The stairs and obstacles function provides useful day-to-day assistance. It lets you walk up stairs leg-over-leg or overcome obstacles such as curbs.
We responded to your requests for improved protection against water and upgraded the Genium to an IP 67 rating. As a result, the Genium can now be exposed to brief rain showers or come into contact with splashed water.
The Genium features two different stance functions that permit resting on the prosthetic. The result is continual relief for the sound side. Bilateral patients benefit from this function as well.
Selecting your prosthesis settings
The option of having up to five MyModes programmed for special activities lets you adapt your prosthesis even better to your everyday life. The new Genium offers an even larger selection of options for individual modes.
With the Cockpit app 2.0 for Apple and Android devices, you can easily and conveniently configure the new Genium yourself. Whether you want to check the battery charge level, select a MyMode or change the volume, it’s all right there on your smartphone or tablet.
Unique technology at the heart of your mobility
The Genium’s introduction in 2011 represented a breakthrough in knee joint technology – but it didnt’ stop there. Every step of the Genium’s development has pushed the limits of technology further with the goal of coming even closer to the natural model. Years of research and development work have resulted in the Genium as we know it today. Movements are calculated with incomparable accuracy and triggered in real time. The technology recognises whether the patient is on uneven terrain or inclines and whether they are changing speeds.
Studies have proven the long-term health benefits of the targeted relief it provides for the sound side. Compensating movements are reduced. Thanks to the Genium’s intuitive use, patients benefit from being able to focus their attention on the important things in life, rather than having to think about every step.
Smart app control
Thanks to integrated Bluetooth®, the Genium can also be controlled with an app. Additional movement patterns are stored as MyModes and can be very easily selected using the corresponding app. Mute mode can be selected via the app as well and is ideal when visiting the cinema or theatre, for example. The battery charge level can also be checked in no time using the Cockpit app, which is available for the new Genium on both Android and Apple (iOS) devices.
The Genium is suitable for people with transfemoral and knee disarticulation and hip disarticulation amputations who want to benefit from the broad range of functionality this knee joint offers, opening up new possibilities in their everyday lives and recreational activities. Special settings in the adjustment software that are available for the Genium meet the needs of bilateral amputees as well.
We can't make any definitive statements regarding this. Many patients are able to take stairs leg-over-leg on the very first day. But it may also take longer depending on your individual situation.
Thanks to intelligent energy management, the Genium has a battery capacity of five days when fully charged. However, we recommend charging the prosthesis every night.
A vibration signal warns you in a timely manner when the battery charge level becomes low. Once it is drained entirely, the Genium automatically switches to safety mode.
Following a technical upgrade, the Genium is now assigned the IP rating 67. Aside from letting you walk in the rain without any concerns, this means that the Genium can also be exposed to splashed water.
