Genium X3

The technology of our Genium leg prostheses makes intuitive and natural motion sequences possible, even when walking backwards or climbing stairs, or when switching between different walking speeds and stride lengths. Enhanced safety and quality of life along with relief for the contralateral side are just some of the aspects that can benefit users. And this has been scientifically proven.

Building on the unique functionality of the Genium, the Genium X3 is particularly robust and resilient. Physically demanding occupations, swimming, recreational sports and situations where you encounter water, dust, sand or dirt – these are the ideal conditions for the Genium X3.

The Genium X3 is easy to configure with the Cockpit app 2.0.
 

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.

Genium X3 stories - Kerstin

 

As a mother of two daughters Kerstin is always required. Her Genium X3 proves itself in the home, during sports, when playing with her children, but also in the water.

Genium X3 stories – Réka

Réka lives her life in the fast lane: she studies, blogs as robotgirl_reka and loves being active. She feels especially free whenever she’s running or swimming. Previously fitted with a transfemoral prosthesis and the Genium, her gait was already virtually normal in everyday life and in sports. But now that she wears the Genium X3, she enjoys even greater freedom. 

Genium X3 stories – John

How can you capture an action-packed week in Croatia with two recent graduates testing their limits in challenging landscapes – especially when one is wearing a lower limb prosthesis? Watch the friends excel at every activity – on land and water – one last time and let them do the talking. It is obvious, however, that John feels most comfortable with his Genium X3 – intuitively supporting his each and every move.

Functionality

Custom configurable thanks to MyModes

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.

Smart adjustment options via app

It’s all in your hands. Thanks to integrated Bluetooth, the Genium X3 can be configured using an app. This makes it very easy to select additional movement patterns, which are stored by your technician as MyModes. Switch the joint to mute mode when you visit a cinema or theatre. You can also read the battery charge level with the Cockpit app 2.0. The new Genium X3 can be configured with the Cockpit app 2.0 for Android was well as Apple (iOS) devices.

FAQS

Answers for you

Who can wear the Genium X3? 

The Genium X3 is suitable for all transfemoral amputees who benefit from its outstanding everyday characteristics and want to experience new possibilities thanks to the water and corrosion resistance of the Genium X3. Bilateral amputees can be fitted with the Genium X3 as well. Special functions geared to the needs of bilateral amputees can be activated in the adjustment software.

Where can I test a Genium X3 knee prosthesis? 

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. This 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 O&P professional will customise these components to your individual needs. The assembly and setup of the chosen components are of course also included, as well as regular service inspections.

How long will the battery of the Genium X3 last? 

Intelligent energy management integrated in the Genium X3 results in a battery capacity of five days when fully charged. However, we recommend charging the prosthesis every night.

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 Genium 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, Ottobock opened up entirely new horizons for prosthesis wearers: a nearly natural gait pattern, climbing stairs step-over-step, walking backwards, relaxed standing – to name just a few examples. The benefits of treatment with a Genium have been scientifically proven in multiple studies.

The Genium has been enhanced based on human movement as the model. 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. Five individually selectable MyModes support special movement patterns at work or during recreation. The leg prosthesis can be configured with the Cockpit app.
