Microprocessor knees are suitable for people of most activity levels and have been shown to significantly reduce the user’s risk of falls. At Beast Prosthetics we can provide knees that are specially adapted to help you walk down slopes or up stairs, transition quickly and easily from walking to running, walk backwards, over uneven ground and can even supply microprocessor knees that are suitable for wearing whilst swimming.
Microprocessor knees work by using built in sensors to detect your walking pattern including timing and movements and then will adjust the friction provided accordingly. This automatic adjustment allows you to concentrate less on the process of walking and more on the walk itself.
Benefits of microprocessor knees:
After receiving your new microprocessor knee, it will be necessary to see a physiotherapist. Even if you have been walking with a prosthetic knee for years, you may have learned some compensative walking patterns that are not necessary when using a microprocessor knee and your physiotherapist can help you to reprogramme your body to your new, more natural walking pattern.
