Live life your way

A bilateral amputation no longer means that you have to give up on your plans for your life. Modern prosthetic technology provides people in your situation with targeted support so they can lead a largely independent, self-determined life. Thanks to intelligent sensor technology, your joint also detects critical situations in advance so it can support you accordingly. From the integrated Stumble Recovery to Intuitive Stance to targeted support for sitting down – our joints’ innovative functions were developed for the specific needs of users with a unilateral or bilateral amputation. Even if you have to adapt your everyday routine here or there to suit your new circumstances, you still have the opportunity to reclaim your freedom and independence again.
