3C60 Knee prosthetics

Kenevo

Evolve with Kenevo

Walking with a prosthesis for the first time means building up confidence step by step. This also applies if you use other devices or generally do not move about much. You become more flexible and independent only when your confidence in the prosthesis grows.

Walking with a prosthesis for the first time means building up confidence step by step. This also applies if you use other devices or generally do not move about much. You become more flexible and independent only when your confidence in the prosthesis grows.

The Kenevo puts a focus on safety. It provides support in typical everyday situations with its basic functions. Moreover, the activity modes make it highly adaptable. The Kenevo keeps pace with your growing skills, for instance during rehabilitation, and adapts itself to decreasing mobility equally well.

The new Kenevo features new functions that make day-to-day life easier and richer. They include the intuitive assisted descent of ramps and the use of an indoor bicycle (static bike). The prosthesis is easier to put on and it can be charged without removing the foam cover. The knee joint can be configured using a smartphone with the Cockpit app.

Benefits at a glance

Stability in every step

Supported sitting down
Support for sitting down and standing up

The Kenevo automatically detects when you sit down and assists you. Even if your movement is slow, you stay in control, because the joint bends accordingly slowly. This feature makes the Kenevo a very stable leg prosthesis. You can hold on to the chair or a walking aid with your hands while sitting down.

Standing function
Secure standing

The Kenevo provides the greatest possible safety while standing, regardless of the selected activity mode. In activity modes A and B, safety is provided by the locked stance phase. The stance phase refers to the moments where you stand on the floor with the prosthesis. 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 also facilitates sitting 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

Carpet edges, thresholds or other tripping hazards should not be an obstacle. The Kenevo has various safety features which are proven to reduce falls. These include Stumble Recovery Plus, this feature covers the entire swing phase, providing the highest level of safety possible. The difference between a stumble and fall can take milliseconds. Unlike other MPKs, the Kenevo does not need to detect a stumble in order to provide the additional support. Instead, As a result, the knee is already prepared on every swing phase for a stumble, therefore there is no reaction time and the risk to the patient is reduced even further. If a stumble was to occur as the knee is extending, the stance resistance is already very high preventing the knee from bending further when the patient lands on it following a stumble.

Michael and his physiotherapist on a ramp
More support for walking down ramps

A new function of the 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 and Cockpit app

With the intuitive indoor bicycle function, you can train intuitively on an indoor bicycle. As soon as you sit down and make pedaling movements, the Kenevo automatically switches to non-steamed fashion after a few revolutions. The joint switches back to "normal" activity mode automatically when you get off the indoor bicycle.

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

The Kenevo can now be charged conveniently without removing the foam cover due to the new charger design. In addition, the donning function allows you to put on the prosthesis while seated. In Mode A, B and B+ the Kenevo is locked in the stance phase. To allow the Kenevo to bend easily, we have added the donning function. When the charger is disconnected, it is possible to flex the knee once with minimal resistance. In Mode C it is already possible to bend the knee against the resistance which is always present in the knee. This makes day-to-day life easier and leaves more time for important things.

NEW: Now also for users up to 150 kg body weight

The Kenevo is now available for users with a body weight of up to 150 kg. This expands the application possibilities and enables even more users to benefit from the advantages of the mechatronic knee joint.

User Experience

Kenevo users move forward with confidence

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 his young age. After the amputation, he knew he didn't want to give it up. With his Kenevo, he feels stable and secure, which enables him to enjoy his everyday life and follow his passion for cars.

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 clients

Physical therapist Markus says, “The Kenevo is ideal for rehabilitation because I can let the knee joint grow with the patient. Thanks to its three activity modes, it supports the patient 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.

Functionality

3 activity modes to suit changing needs

Grows with every user

The Kenevo has three activity modes. This gives it an extraordinary ability to adapt to your individual needs and developing skills, for example, during rehabilitation. Your prosthetist adjusts the appropriate activity mode for you on the knee joint.

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 attenuation. 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.
