    In 1997, Otto Bock introduced the C-Leg, the world’s first fully microprocessor-controlled knee. With most prosthetic knees, users worry about stumbling or falling, and have to keep their prosthetic knee straight with each step. But C-Leg Technology changed all that.

    C-Leg allows the user to seamlessly speed up or slow down, take on hills or slopes, recover from stumbles and go down stairs step-over-step. The application of science behind the knee is revolutionary by using microprocessors to control the knee’s hydraulic function. The knee is constantly being fine-tuned to adjust to the user’s movements – anticipating what the user is doing and accommodating every change in real-time!
