Kenevo: Reclaim your sense of security
What you need to know
Advantages for you
Stand and walk securely
With Kenevo, you can stand securely without having to worry about becoming unstable as you shift your weight. Kenevo is specially designed to enable you to take small steps safely – even while walking backward.
Change positions with ease
Do you sometimes need to pause a moment as you are sitting down or getting back up to a standing position? Kenevo enables you to ease down into a chair and back up again without feeling like you’re falling. You can also change positions without manually adjusting your leg, so you can roam hands-free, just like you used to do.
Move with confidence
There’s no need to avoid crowds for fear that you’ll be knocked off your feet by a little jostle. Kenevo allows you to recover your balance if you stumble or experience a slight bump. With Kenevo, you can also walk down stairs at your own pace, step over step.
Works well with walking aids
Kenevo is fine tuned to support the way people walk with walkers, crutches and canes, so it will support you every step of the way – no matter how you get there! If you sometimes use a wheelchair, Kenevo won’t get in your way. Kenevo’s wheelchair function enables you to keep adequate clearance between the prosthesis and the ground, so you can maneuver easily.
Adapts to your changing needs
Programmable options allow your prosthetist to adjust the level of support Kenevo provides so it is right for what you need right now. Kenevo can provide appropriate stability you as you challenge yourself to meet your recovery goals through rehab and as you may experience situations where you need more support.
Less worry for you and your family
As Kenevo helps you regain your independence, you can worry less about having to rely on family and other caregivers – and they will worry less about you. Kenevo can help you feel more confident in regaining your place in the social life of your family and friends, just like old times.
How Kenevo works
How Kenevo works
The new Kenevo knee is based on Ottobock’s ground breaking C-Leg microprocessor technology.
However, unlike C-Leg, Kenevo is fine-tuned for the specific needs of lower mobility persons – those who tend to take shorter, shuffling steps and who may use walking aids occasionally. As a result, Kenevo helps keep you safe and feeling secure as you go about your daily activities or challenge yourself through the rehab process.
