Above-knee prosthesis with: Genium

Reclaim your strength

What you need to know

Advantages for you

Walk up stairs step over step

The ONLY microprocessor knee that lets you walk upstairs under your own power, thanks to Genium’s many sensory inputs.

Cross obstacles more smoothly

Now everyday obstacles can be stepped right over—supported by a stable, flexed knee when your foot strikes the ground. No more awkward swinging your prosthetic leg around the impediments of daily life.

Walk backwards, forwards ... and more

Genium detects your forward and backward motion and provides support as needed. You’ll be secure even when stepping backwards or changing direction

Stand more easily

The Genium can tell when you’re standing and automatically resists further flexing. Suddenly, you’re more relaxed while standing, saving you energy and taking stress away from your sound side – even on inclines and uneven surfaces.

Sit more naturally

If you sit for more than 2 seconds (with your thigh parallel to the ground and minimal weight on the leg) the Genium reduces resistance to take a more natural position—and switches to an energy‑saving mode!

Water-resistant—and more!

Everyday dust and dirt is no problem for Genium. But even better, the Genium is rated – which means you are protected against splashed water from all sides.

Every step is smooth and secure

Choose Ottobock Triton feet from Ottobock to complete your Genium system:

Lightweight and responsive, chose from

• Triton smart ankle with adjustable heel height

• Triton Vertical Shock for compact comfort

• Triton Harmony with integrated vacuum, or

• Triton Low Profile for extra room.

Cockpit App for Android puts control at your fingertips

Just like the remote control, you can now check battery life, watch step counts, and switch between 5 modes. The app adds adjustment options, too!

No need to interrupt your busy day to re-charge.

With a battery life of 5 days, there’s no problem if you need extra time away from your charger. Plus, Genium’s charger is connected with magnets to the back of the knee. Makes charging a snap — even through clothing or cosmetic covers – and no open charging ports.

How the Genium works

Genium’s advantage: Optimized Physiological Gait (OPG)

How does it work?

(1) Preflex: Prepares the knee for flexion in loading with every step by maintaining a controlled 4o of knee flexion at initial contact

  • Improves shock absorption and a more equal stride
  • Makes slopes and uneven terrain easier to handle and reduces compensatory motions
  • Helps make swing initiation easier.

(2) Adaptive Yielding Control: Stance flexion and stance extension resistances optimize movement.

  • Intuitive yielding for stance flexion and stance extension
  • Improves efficient control of prosthesis
  • Provides more stability in stance flexion
  • Prevents extension “snap-back” of knee at mid-stance.

(3) Dynamic Stabiility Control (DSC): The main electronics monitors six sensor inputs to ensure appropriate timing for stance release.

  • Makes it easier to take quick steps in any direction – forwards, backwards, and sideways
  • Increases stability when walking backwards.

(4) Adaptive Swing Phase Control: Swing phase flexion and extension resistances change in real time.

  • OPG function is not limited by walking style or pace: quick, slow, irregular
  • Eases completion of swing phase, reducing the risk of stumbles and falls
