You can switch the C-Leg from normal mode to an individually adjustable second mode in an instant. This second mode makes it possible for you to stand with a slightly flexed knee for a long period of time, for example. But this mode can also be set for sporting activities such as cycling or cross-country skiing.
An additional standing mode that can be selectively activated also provides additional safety and comfort. This mode allows you to stabilize the C-Leg at any flexion angle without expending additional muscle strength.
What are the previous experiences with the C-Leg?
More than 20,000 people have been fitted with the C-Leg all over the world. A recent survey showed that the quality of life for C-Leg wearers increases significantly. In particular, the greater everyday activity radius was emphasized positively by wearers of the high-quality leg prosthesis system. They no longer have to concentrate consciously on controlling the prosthesis, and therefore can focus on more important things once again. They also rated very positively the fact that stairs, slopes, and uneven surfaces no longer present obstacles with the C-Leg.
Is it possible to exchange my current C-Leg for a new one?
In principle, you can switch to the new C-Leg at any time. However, you should first discuss the absorption of costs with your prosthetist.
Can my current C-Leg be upgraded?
Unfortunately this is not possible for technical reasons.
Do technicians require additional qualifications to work with the new C-Leg?
No, adjustment of the C-Leg is the same as before. We informed all certified prosthetists of the new features of the C-Leg in time for the market introduction of the new C-Leg.
Will the prior C-Leg still be serviced?
Of course service and repair for the prior C-Leg will continue to be offered as before, with no restrictions.
Do the new service intervals of two years also apply to the prior C-Leg?
The extension of the service intervals to two years only applies to the new, technically advanced C-Leg. The previous C-Leg - which can be recognized by the silver frame - must be serviced once a year as indicated in your warranty documentation. We make this recommendation for your own safety.
Does the new C-Leg Protector also fit the prior C-Leg?
Of course the C-Leg Protector can be adapted to any C-Leg. In addition, you can also use it for the C-Leg compact for the first time.
