There are a number of different knees available which can cater for your sporting needs.
In the water
If you enjoy surfing or being in the water your prosthetic knee should not hold you back, the Nylon knee is low maintenance and durable and designed to be used in the dirt, water and mud.
Whilst some may prefer to run without a knee joint there are options available for those who would prefer one. The Ӧssur Cheetah Knee and the Ottobock 3S80 are designed for running and sprinting. The Cheetah Knee is a polycentric knee which is lightweight and enables rapid flexion and extension whilst remaining stable in stance. The 3S80 is a rotary hydraulic knee which is compact and robust, being able to withstand the high forces experienced within running.
Many different prosthetic knees have cycling modes built in. enabling the knee to flex freely as you pedal. For mountain biking where there are increased forces the CrossOver Extendable Knee may be suitable. This knee uses an adjustable tendon system and pneumatic/hydraulic shock systems to create a knee which is lightweight, durable and suitable for all environments.
