You can see the changes in the new generation of the Modular Knee Joint 3R106 just by looking at it. However, the changes go beneath this knee’s surface. A new pneumatic system makes this prosthesic knee joint more powerful and controls the swing phase even more precisely and reliably. We also optimized the wear-resistance, convenience, adaptation possibilities, and weight limit. On the other hand, proven safety and the large degree of flexion remained unchanged.
High-Performance Dual Chamber Pneumatic Unit
The high-performance dual chamber pneumatic unit is a decisive factor. Although the structural height remains the same, it permits a large range of walking speeds. The novel characteristic of swing phase damping with especially easy initiation of the swing phase and a harmonious extension stop has a positive effect on a natural gait pattern. At the same time, the energy expenditure of the wearer is reduced. You can adjust the flexion and extension damping separately. The scope of delivery includes an additional extension assist spring which you can easily install in order to reduce the amount of extension force required.
Comfort and Safety
In the extended position, the instantaneous pivot point is located well above the joint and behind the load line. Therefore the modern polycentric structure secures the knee joint securely in the standing phase and ensures greater ground clearance in the swing phase. This increases the wearer’s overall trust in the entire prosthesis. The wide flexion angle of 170° and the light weight of 760 grams also reduces the strain on the user, for example when biking, getting into the car, sitting, or kneeling.
Four Installation Options
The four modular installation options – identical to the new 3R60 EBS Knee Joint – allow for easy fitting of all amputation heights. The latest development of the 3R106 is also suitable for your customers who weigh up to 100 kilograms. The required tube adapter is included with the knee.
