3C60 - Knee prosthetics


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.

Kenevo – safe and supportive

Supported sitting down
Supported sitting down

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.

Supported standing up
Supported standing up

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.

Standing function
Standing function

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.

Enhanced safety
Enhanced safety

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.

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.

Assisted descent of 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.

Wheelchair function
Wheelchair function

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.

Charging with foam cover
Additional benefits in everyday life

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.

User Experience

My reliable companion

Bob and his Kenevo

Bob's greatest passion is his cars. Organising his day flexibly and independently is important to him. To help with this, the Kenevo provides Bob reliable safety with each step.

Detlef and his Kenevo

Detlef is most comfortable at home, but he loves his walks and never misses one. He loves watching his grandson play football. He felt very uncertain after his amputation due to his age, but the Kenevo showed him that he can put his confidence in a knee joint. It is reliable and gives him safety in his everyday life, with every step he takes.

Michael and his Kenevo

Michael made the most of his rehabilitation with the Kenevo – placing his confidence in the knee joint was the biggest challenge at first. Together with his physiotherapist, Michael learned to navigate stairs and uneven surfaces step by step. Today, Michael wears a Genium X3. He works as a logistics specialist in a production facility and enjoys doing sports with his wife and friends.

Markus, rehabilitation physiotherapist

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

Christian, O&P Professional

"Safety is the most important thing for the patient directly after the amputation. The patient has to be confident that they can rely on the prosthesis."


Adaptable thanks to various modes

Explanation of the three activity modes

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

In mode A, the Ottobock knee joint is locked and does not initiate a swing phase. The Kenevo, which is a stable prosthesis, therefore provides a high level safety and does not allow unexpected movements.

The locked mode is thus especially appropriate if you have little control over your residual limb, primarily walk only short distances indoors and spend most of your time sitting.

Mode B: Semi Locked Mode without stance phase flexion

In this mode B, the joint is locked during the entire stance phase. It unlocks when you start the swing movement of your leg for the swing phase. This is largely independent of your gait pattern and whether you are using other walking aids. The Kenevo initiates the swing phase always at the right time.

This activity mode is especially useful if you have a medium control of your residual limb, cover short distances and walk slowly.

Mode B+: Semi Locked Mode with stance phase flexion

This activity mode corresponds to the mode B, but is supplemented by a stance phase flexion at heel strike of up to 10°. What sounds technical, means that you can walk on moderate slopes. As soon as your heel hits the ground, the knee bends slightly. This results in a movement that looks more natural.

This activity mode is suitable if you have already built enough confidence in your prosthesis in order to walk with stance phase flexion.

Mode C: Yielding Mode

A more natural walking with the same high level of safety can be reached in the Yielding Mode. In comparison to the other activity modes, the stance phase in mode C is not locked, but has a high attenuation. This helps you go with the transfemoral prosthesis on level ground, on slopes and stairs. The swing phase can be initiated earlier, which facilitates the more dynamic movements.

Activity mode C is suitable for you if you can control your residual limb moderately, are able to deal with various everyday situations and cover short to medium walking distances outdoors.
