3C60 - Knee prosthetics

Kenevo

A new option for enhanced safety and increased confidence

Since its launch in 2015, the Kenevo microprocessor knee fundamentally changed prosthetics for low to moderately active amputees. This prosthetic knee was designed to provide you with a greater sense of security so you can live the life you deserve.

Since its launch in 2015, the Kenevo microprocessor knee fundamentally changed prosthetics for low to moderately active amputees. This prosthetic knee was designed to provide you with a greater sense of security so you can live the life you deserve.

Microprocessor-controlled knees have been shown to reduce the risk of falls by up to 80%1 in moderately active persons, as well as improve the indicators of fall risk, such as fear of falling.2

With key features such as Stumble Recovery Plus, supported stand-to-sit and sit-to-stand, wheelchair mode, and putting on the prosthesis while seated, it is no wonder users feel more confident and independent than ever before.

Benefits at a glance
Supported sitting down
Support for sitting down and standing up

The Kenevo automatically detects when users start to sit or stand, mirroring their speed to keep them stable and in control during the transition. With no manual adjustments needed, their hands are free to use a chair or walking aid for support as desired.

Standing function
Works well with assistive devices

The Kenevo is fine-tuned to support those who may need a walker, cane, or other assistive devices, so it will support you every step of the way no matter how you get there! If you sometimes use a wheelchair, the Kenevo won’t get in your way. The Kenevo’s wheelchair function enables you to keep adequate clearance between the prosthesis and the ground so you can maneuver easily.

Wheelchair function
Cane, walker, and wheelchair support

The Kenevo is fine-tuned to support users with walkers, canes, or other assistive devices. Plus, with one hand movement, the wheelchair function locks the knee in a slightly outstretched position to keep the leg off the ground so users can maneuver safely.

Enhanced safety
Walk securely and with confidence

The Kenevo was specifically designed so you can walk safely, especially on uneven terrain, down stairs and ramps, and backward. Stumble Recovery Plus is just one of the Kenevo’s safety features, which gives you the time to recover if you were to stumble. The Kenevo makes users feel safe again, allowing them to become more mobile and independent.

Asissted 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.

Intuitive indoor bicycle function
Exercise easily and safely

Exercise without compromising safety or comfort with the Kenevo’s intuitive stationary indoor bicycle function. As soon as you sit down and start pedaling, the Kenevo automatically switches functions to support your movement. Once you are finished, simply get off the stationary indoor bike and the Kenevo will automatically go back to “normal” mode so you can walk safely.

Manual locking function

With the manual locking function, the Kenevo can be conveniently secured in the extended position by a simple tapping pattern, even when using a cosmetic solution. This offers users with low mobility additional stability in situations where increased safety is needed.

Training Feedback Features

The new training feedback features provide signals for specific movement patterns during training, e.g. for stance release, stance phase flexion, load on prosthesis and many more. The users can use the feedback signals via the Cockpit app to continue prosthetic training at home and refine their movements. 

Supported standing up
Sit and stand up with ease

Do you sometimes need to pause a moment as you are sitting down or standing up? If yes, don’t worry! The Kenevo automatically detects when you start to sit down or stand up, and will support both movements so you do not fall into or back in the chair. Since no manual adjustments of the knee are necessary, this leaves your hands free so you can use an armrest or assistive device, if needed.

Charging with foam cover
Next-level convenience

Putting on the Kenevo is easier than ever thanks to complete flexion of the knee joint. Plus, it can now be charged without removing the foam cover. Just a couple of ways Kenevo users get more time — and less stress — back in their day.

NEW: Now also for users up to 330 lbs body weight

The Kenevo is now available for users with a body weight of up to 330 lbs. This expands the application possibilities and enables even more users to benefit from the advantages of the mechatronic knee joint.

User Experience

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, rehabilitation physical therapist

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

Bob's greatest passion is his cars. The Kenevo provides Bob reliable safety with each step, helping him to independently organize his day.
