What safety potential do currently available microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee joints offer in various everyday situations?

Abstract: Three currently available microprocessor-controlled knee joints were investigated in various safety relevant everyday gait situations regarding their biomechanical performance. There is evidence that there are significant differences in the safety potential of these knee joints.

Evaluation of surface vs. implanted electrodes for myoelectric control of a microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee

Abstract: Myoelectric signals can provide a direct representation of user intent. This study investigates the control of a microprocessor controlled knee (MPK) using myoelectric signals recorded from the surface of the skin vs. from implanted electrodes, and comparing recording methods and signal properties.

Knee moment symmetry during 5° hill walking with genium and C-Leg knees

Abstract: This study evaluates hill walking between two microprocessor knee systems in community ambulating persons with transfemoral amputation in terms of knee moment symmetry. It extends previous kinematic work showing use of the Genium system as an improvement over the C-Leg knee system.

A new microprocessor-controlled knee (MPK3) significantly improves mobility and function in high active TF amputees compared to their previous MPK

Abstract: To test the performance of a recently developed MPK a prospective pre-post study was conducted. 13 TFs using 2 types of MPKs were measured at baseline and then fitted with the new MPK and measured again at 3 weeks. MPK3 significantly outperformed the comparing MPKs on various parameters measured.

First clinical results of the newly developed microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee joint ‘Kenevo’ in limited community ambulators

Abstract: First clinical results of the new microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee joint ‘Kenevo’ are gathered during the market introduction in Germany. Various dimensions including mobility status, pain level and safety will be assessed. A comparison between previous and new fitting shall be presented.
