Genium X3

The Genium X3 has now been developed even further for smoother, more intuitive walking, improved safety, and better support in everyday situations. Additionally, the Genium X3 is simple to control using the Cockpit app on your iPhone or Android smartphone.

Building on the unique functionality of the Genium leg prosthesis, the Genium X3 is particularly robust and resilient. Physically demanding occupations, an active family life, swimming and sports activities, and situations where you encounter water, dust, sand, dirt, or grime – these are the ideal conditions for the Genium X3.

Inertial motion unit (IMU)

Prosthesis control is based on motion analysis and additional force measurement. To this end, sensors determine the position and acceleration of the Genium X3 leg prosthesis as well as the flexion angle and flexion angle speed in real time.

Battery and electronics

The Genium X3’s rechargeable battery and electronics are enclosed and protected by the frame and Protective Cover. An integrated microprocessor coordinates all measurement and control processes.

Hydraulic unit

The hydraulic unit controls the Genium X3. The flexion and extension resistances are controlled independently by means of two control valves.

Robust Protective Cover

The robust Protective Cover effectively protects the prosthesis against numerous everyday stresses. In addition to water, dust and dirt, this includes protection against impacts.

Knee moment sensor

The knee moment sensor supplies data about the knee moments that occur: this important information makes it possible to precisely determine the forces acting on the prosthesis.

Inductive charging

The inductive charger is magnetically attached to the back of the prosthetic knee joint. This technology allows charging through clothing and cosmetic covers.

Intelligent AXON tube adapter

The AXON tube adapter measures the ankle moment and the vertical force acting on the joint in real time. The AXON tube adapter can be connected to a foot without a connecting piece.

Carbon fibre frame

In order to withstand the varied demands of everyday life, the frame is made from carbon – an especially strong, high-grade and lightweight material.

Waterproof and corrosion-resistant

The IP rating 68 means protection against the ingress of liquids and solids such as dust and dirt. The Genium X3 is not only waterproof but also fully functional underwater and is protected against strong jets of water. A corrosion-resistant coating makes it easy to enjoy activities in fresh, chlorinated and salt water.

Unique technology at the heart of your mobility

Movement is calculated with incomparable accuracy and initiated in real time by the Genium X3, whether on uneven terrain and slopes, when changing speeds, or in confined spaces. Studies prove that providing targeted relief for the contralateral side also has long-term health benefits. Particularly robust materials allow even more freedom of movement, including in wet and harsh environments. Patients can benefit from focusing their attention on the important things in life, rather than having to think about every step.

FAQS

Answers for you

Where can I test a Genium X3? 

The Genium X3 is fitted by certified medical supply companies whose employees have completed special training. A trial fitting may be obtained from one of these companies. It takes place over a predetermined period of time and is monitored by Ottobock when needed.

How long will it take me to learn how to use the Genium X3 properly?

We can't make any general statements regarding this. A majority of trial users are able to take stairs step-over-step on the very first day. However, this may also take a few days or weeks depending on the individual situation.

What all is included in a fitting with a Genium X3 leg prosthesis? 

The fitting includes all components from an appropriate prosthetic socket to a prosthetic foot. Your prosthetist will customize these components to your individual needs. The assembly and setup of the chosen components are also included, as well as regular service inspections.

How do I know when the battery is running low? 

Vibration signals warn you in a timely manner when the battery charge level becomes critically low. Once it is drained entirely or if the power supply fails, the X3 automatically switches to safety mode. 

Can I shower or go swimming with the Genium X3? 

The Genium X3 is waterproof (even against strong jets of water), and only corrosion-resistant components are used. High-quality materials protect the sensitive electronics in the prosthesis. The Genium X3 was assigned the highest possible protection class, IP 68.

Genium

With the market launch of the Genium leg prosthesis in 2011, Ottobock opened up entirely new horizons for prosthesis wearers: an unprecedented, natural gait pattern, climbing stairs step-over-step, overcoming obstacles, walking backwards, relaxed standing – to name just a few. For the first time, people with a transfemoral amputation experienced a range of new functions that provided perfect support for their desire to live a more active and independent everyday life.

Based on human movement as the model, the Genium has been developed even further. The result is a noticeably smoother gait and even better support and safety in everyday situations, for instance on ramps, in confined spaces, or when changing walking speeds.
