Stable, healthy standing

It makes all the difference

Commonplace for others, quality of life for you

Are situations that require extended standing challenging for you? With the Intuitive Stance offered by our microprocessor-controlled knee joints, you no longer need to be nervous about or avoid prolonged standing. Our joints understand your movements and know whether you are standing and relaxing or wanting to initiate your next step. The Intuitive Stance Function adapts to your current situation and movements, allowing you to move freely without having to think twice. It also enables you to distribute weight evenly between both legs, helping to prevent damaging compensatory movements, no matter whether you are standing on an even surface or an incline.

Relaxed standing, without having to think about it

Are you often standing at work or during your free-time? Intuitive Stance is able to support you in every situation, without you having to think about it. Ask your Prosthetist today for a trial of one of our microprocessor knees and experience the benefits of Intuitive Stance yourself.

Comfortable standing – including on uneven ground

Whether having a barbeque outside with friends or playing with your children in the garden, the Intuitive Stance offered by our MPKs means you no longer have to avoid activities requiring extended standing. The function is able to support you on uneven ground and inclines, providing you with complete security throughout the day.

A relaxed chat – no matter where

We believe your prosthesis should never get in the way of your social life. With Intuitive Stance, you no longer need to worry about standing on a night out or chatting with a friend for any extended amount of time. Standing with a prosthetic knee joint is now more stable and secure than ever – even at the most unexpected of moments.

Play a leading role in life

Do you want to hold your child in your arms?* Or need to lift a box onto a cabinet? You know how important a stable stance is in such situations. The Intuitive Stance offered by our microprocessor-controlled knee joints makes stable and healthy standing possible for you, even during these moments. Give it a try and find the joint that best supports your everyday requirements.

* Special caution is required in all situations where children are being carried. Note the maximum allowable weight for the prosthesis.
