Functional cosmesis C-Leg

Do you want a leg prosthesis that looks as inconspicuous and natural as possible? 
From day-to-day work to recreation, the functional cosmesis restores the natural volume of your leg as closely as possible. This impressive multi-part solution also integrates well with other prosthesis functions. The functional cosmesis consists of a knee part, a functional shank made of foam that can be custom moulded by the O&P professional and a functional stocking that forms the exterior finish.

Functional shank

The O&P professional moulds the foam element to create a natural looking lower leg that matches the original leg contour. The material impresses thanks to a pleasant feel and good dimensional stability.

Functional knee part

The robust knee part creates a natural knee volume. It permits unrestricted movement of the knee joint and facilitates a smooth connection to the socket.

Functional stocking

The functional stocking offers numerous benefits.
It is highly elastic in moveable zones, such as the knee, while producing an even surface in other areas thanks to yarn that is processed to give it a fleecy effect. Special properties of the yarn protect against splashed water.

FAQS

Answers for you

Can I wear a functional cosmesis?

In principle, the functional cosmesis is available for Genium and C-Leg 4 users.
Please ask your medical supply specialist whether it is in fact suitable for you as an individual.

Can I put on and take off the functional cosmesis by myself?
 

Partly, yes. The functional stocking is removable and machine washable. However, the underlying elements of the functional cosmesis – the functional knee part and the functional shank made of foam – can only be put on and taken off by your O&P professional, as this requires work on the prosthesis.

Does the functional cosmesis protect my prosthesis?

The functional cosmesis protects your prosthesis to a certain extent during normal, everyday use. This applies, for example, to contact with splashed water and small particles of dirt. The pre-shaped functional knee part also supports your body weight when you kneel down. For more comprehensive protection for your C-Leg 4 or Genium knee joint, please see the information regarding our special Protective Covers.

Does the functional stocking make my prosthesis waterproof?

No. The functional stocking only protects against splashed water.

Can I wash the functional stocking?

Yes. It is machine washable at 30 °C. Please select the “Easy Care” or “Delicates” program.

Can I charge my knee joint with the functional stocking?

If you are wearing a Genium, inductive charging of your joint through the functional stocking is also possible. If you wear a C-Leg, you need to expose the charging unit for charging by pulling the stocking down slightly.

What can I do if my functional stocking slips out of place?

Make sure that the interior silicone band is lying on top of the socket material as far as possible (not on foam or similar) to ensure good adhesion of the stocking.

Wipe the silicone band with a damp cloth every three days to maintain its adhesive properties.

Can I kneel down with my functional stocking?

Yes. Please note, however, that this is a wear and tear part, and subject to natural wear. The lifetime decreases or increases depending on the individual level of use. Kneeling in short clothing on rough surfaces, for example, can decrease the service life.

What can I do if the feedback signals from my knee joint are difficult for me to hear through the functional cosmesis?

Please contact your O&P professional. He or she can adjust the signal volume.
