Title Lecture Info Speaker

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Randomized, cross-over multicenter study evaluating a novel electronic prosthetic knee joint for moderately active amputees

Abstract: This study investigates the benefits of microprocessor controlled knees for elderly patients with limited mobility over mechanical knee joints

Ndue, Leonard

Lecture Scientific/Practical

On the (Im-)possibility to predict who may benefit from a microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee component

Abstract: We investigate the classifying and predictive power of a variaty of clinical variables to understand which parameters may characterize successful responders to MPK trial fittings. The findings should allow to exclude unsuitable parameters.

Hahn, Andreas

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Effects of new microprocessor-controlled knee on safety, mobility and satisfaction of lower activity patients with transfemoral amputation

Abstract: Kenevo is a new microprocessor controlled knee (MPK) designed specifically for lower activity transfemoral (TF) amputees. First routine fittings suggest that it improves functional mobility and safety. 89% of the amputees preferred Kenevo over their previous knee.

Mileusnic, Milana

Lecture Scientific/Practical

The functional added-value of a microprocessor-controlled knee joint for amputees over the age of 65 years, a pilot study

Abstract: In this study the functional added-value of a new microprocessor-controlled knee prosthesis, ‘KENEVO’, which has been specifically developed for geriatric amputees, is investigated for activity and participation levels in amputees of at least 65 years who are active in and around the house.

Hemmen, Bea

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Benefits of microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knees in limited community ambulators (mobility grade 2) - A systematic review of the literature

Abstract: Evidence shows that patients with a transfemoral amputation and mobility grade 2 benefit from using microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knees to the same extent as patients with higher mobility grades in terms of safety, function, and mobility.
