C-Brace is changing lives one step at a time.

Live the life you deserve with the C-Brace.

What is the C-Brace and who can benefit from it?

The C-Brace is a microprocessor-controlled leg orthosis that responds to everyday movements and situations in real-time. This helps ensure the safety, stability, and confidence in user’s everyday lives.

The C-Brace allows people with paralysis in their legs to walk on uneven terrain, go up and down slopes, inclines, and take stairs one foot at a time, step-by-step.

C-Brace users can enjoy activities with their families and friends, while experiencing life in a completely new way. People with neurological indications of the lower limbs can benefit from the C-Brace. The leading indications are incomplete paraplegia (lesion between L1 and L5) with very minor to no spasticity, as well as post-polio syndrome, a condition that can follow poliomyelitis.

C-Brace Explained

How does the C-Brace work?

The C-Brace consists of individually fabricated thigh, calf, and foot components. An ankle joint or individual spring element connects the foot and calf components. The sensor system continuously measures the flexion of the knee joint and its angular acceleration. This lets the C-Brace detect the user’s current walking phase, so it can regulate the hydraulic resistances as well as control the flexion and extension of the knee joint.
