3C60 - Knee prosthetics


Evolve with Kenevo

Taking your first steps with a prosthesis is a journey of building confidence, one step at a time. As you grow more confident in your prosthesis, you'll find your independence increasing.

Taking your first steps with a prosthesis is a journey of building confidence, one step at a time. As you grow more confident in your prosthesis, you'll find your independence increasing.

Kenevo puts a focus on safety, offering essential support for everyday activities with its basic functions. Its adaptive activity modes ensure it evolves with you, either during your initial rehabilitation or when your mobility is decreasing too.

Kenevo features functions that make day-to-day life easier and richer. Including intuitive assisted descent on ramps and intuitive indoor bicycle mode. The prosthesis is easy to don, can be charged without removing the foam cover. Discover more about how Kenevo can enhance your life.

Benefits at a glance
Supported sitting down
Support for sitting down and standing up

Kenevo automatically detects when you sit down and assists you. Even if your movement is slow, you stay in control, because the resistance in the MPK adapts to your movement. This feature helps makes the Kenevo very stable and an ideal primary prosthesis. 

Standing function
Secure standing

Kenevo provides the greatest saftey possible while standing, regardless of the selected activity mode. In activity modes A and B, safety is provided by the locked stance phase. Stance phase is the time when your prosthetic foot is in contact with the floor. In the more dynamic activity mode C, stable standing is possible even with the knee flexed, thanks to the intuitive stance feature.

Wheelchair function
Cane, walker, and wheelchair support

Thanks to additional ground clearance, the Kenevo enables uses to sit in a wheelchair. With only one hand movement, the prosthetic knee joint can be locked between a slightly bent position and an almost fully extended leg. This prevents the leg prosthesis from getting caught on the ground.

Enhanced safety
Safe walking in everyday situations

The difference between a stumble and a fall can take milliseconds, and unlike other MPKs, the Kenevo does not need to detect a stumble to provide additional support. The knee is prepared during each swing phase for a stumble, meaning there is no reaction time. If a stumble was to occur as the knee is extending, the resistance is already high, preventing the knee from bending further when your foot makes contact with the floor.

More support for walking down ramps

Kenevo provides intuitive support while walking down ramps. As you bend the knee the resistance increases to support and control your descent. This improves stability and can support your mobility, both indoors and out.

Intuitive indoor bicycle function

Intuitive indoor bicycle function 

Want to be more active, now you can easily increase your activity with the new intuitive cycling mode on the Kenevo. The resistance in the MPK automatically adapts as soon as you begin cycling on an indoor bicycle ensuring a seamless experience. Then, once you’re done, the MPK switches back automatically when you step off the bike – convenience at its finest!

Manual locking function

With the manual locking function, the Kenevo can be conveniently secured in the extended position by a simple tapping pattern, even when using a cover. This offers users with low mobility additional stability in situations where increased safety is needed.

Training Feedback Features

The new training feedback function means physiotherapists can gain valuable insights into their patients movement execution, enabling tailored tips and guidance during therapy sessions. Through the Kenevo ABC app and Cockpit connect app, acoustic signals can be selected for some, or all of each patients selected movement patterns. The Kenevo will then make a sound to notify that a patient has performed the movement correctly. 

Supported standing up
Smart control via app

It is possible to put weight on the Kenevo while standing up. Even if you need to pause again, this is not a problem – the leg prosthesis reacts immediately and allows you to pause with the knee flexed. This is a function for balance and stability.

Charging with foam cover
Next-level convenience

Kenevo can be charged conveniently without removing the foam cover. Additionally, the donning function allows you to put on the prosthesis while seated. In Modes A, B, and B+, the Kenevo is locked in the stance phase, but to enable easy bending, the donning function has been added. When the charger is disconnected, the knee can flex once with minimal resistance. In Mode C, the knee can already bend against a constant resistance. This feature simplifies daily activities, allowing more time for what’s important to you.

For users up to 150 kg body weight

Kenevo is now available for users with a body weight of up to 150 kg. This expands the application possibilities and enables even more people to benefit from the proven stability and innovative technology of our MPK!

User Experience

Robert feels confident with his Kenevo

Robert enjoys the simple but important things in his life. Being able to plan his day, make breakfast or enjoy the afternoon in the garden. His Kenevo gives him support with adjusting to new situations and mastering everyday challenges.

Günter loves his hobby

Günter has loved classic cars since he was young. After his amputation, he knew he didn't want to give it up. With his Kenevo, he feels stable and secure, enabling him to enjoy everyday life and follow his passions.

Detlef found his new normal

Detlef loves taking regular walks and watching his grandson play football. He was concerned that he might have trouble recovering after his amputation, but with the Kenevo microprocessor knee, he feels safe and secure with every step.

The Kenevo kept Michael moving

Michael used the Kenevo to make the most of his therapy and rehabilitation. It took some time for him to trust the knee joint, but he worked with his physiotherapist and learned to navigate stairs, uneven surfaces, and more before switching to a Genium X3.

Markus uses Kenevo to help his patients

Physiotherapist Markus says, “The Kenevo is ideal for rehabilitation because I can let the knee joint grow with each patient. Thanks to its three activity modes, it supports my patients and their needs on a completely individual basis.”

The Kenevo gives Christian’s patients confidence

As a prosthetist, Christian trusts Kenevo to help his patients recover. “Safety is the most important thing for the patient directly after amputation. The patient has to be confident that they can rely on the prosthesis.”

Bob built everyday confidence

Whether he’s indulging in his passion for cars, mowing the lawn, or just planning out his day, Bob wants to know his knee will keep him safe and stable at all times. The Kenevo provides the reliable safety Bob needs to stay as independent as possible.


Mode A: Locked Mode

The joint is locked and does not initiate a swing phase. Mode A provides a high level of safety and doesn’t allow unexpected movements. 

Best for: Users who have little control over their residual limb, primarily walk only short distances indoors, and spend most of their time sitting.

Mode B: Semi Locked Mode without stance phase flexion

The joint is locked during the entire stance phase but unlocks when the user starts the swing movement of their leg for the swing phase. Regardless of gait pattern or additional walking aids, the Kenevo always initiates the swing phase at the right time. 

Best for: Users who have moderate control of their residual limb, cover short distances, and walk slowly.

Mode B+: Semi Locked Mode with stance phase flexion

Same as mode B, but with the addition of stance phase flexion at heel strike of up to 10° for walking on moderate slopes. As soon as the user’s heel hits the ground, the knee bends slightly, resulting in a movement that looks and feels more natural.

Best for: Users who have built enough confidence in their prosthesis to walk with stance phase flexion.

Mode C: Yielding Mode

The stance phase is not locked but has a high resistance. This enables the swing phase to be initiated earlier for more dynamic movements — and supports more natural walking with the same high level of safety on level ground, slopes, and stairs. 

Best for: Users who have moderate control of their residual limb, can navigate various everyday mobility scenarios, and are comfortable covering short-to-medium walking distances outdoors.
