RHEO KNEE® 3 by Össur®. A perfect balance of stability and dynamics.

variFlex.jpg

Featuring a new gyroscope and kinematic sensor, RHEO KNEE 3 offers increased (and smoother) resistance across a wider range of stance flexion. This improved support from heel strike to toe off helps increase the confidence of all users whether walking on varied terrain, ramps and stairs, or merely standing. However, it is especially reassuring to low K3 users.

At the same time, we didn’t sacrifice the dynamics that RHEO KNEE is known for and that high K3 users expect. In fact, we improved them! With a more powerful actuator and a faster, more consistent swing extension, RHEO KNEE 3 makes it even easier for high active users to walk their way.

Key Features:

  • NEW! Actuator and kinematic sensor enhance stance stability and dynamics.
  • NEW! Redesigned extension assist for faster and more natural swing extension.
  • NEW! 300lb weight limit and up to 3 days of battery life.
  • “Zero Lag” actuator provides an instant response.
  • Effortless swing intiation enables a smoother gait.

Contact your Össur rep or call (800) 233-6263 today to get certified or demo RHEO KNEE 3.


Endolite Comfort Liner

Endolite Comfort Liner

The Endolite Comfort Liner is gentle on fragile skin and protects residual limbs with areas susceptible to shear force abrasion and pressure peaks. The fabric cover with integrated matrix contours perfectly to the limb and zonal stretch areas allow comfortable knee flexion but resist distal stretch with would result in the prosthesis slipping away from the body. At 485mm, the Endolite Comfort Liner allows additional consideration for positioning of the trim line. The Comfort Locking Liner features a super flexi-umbrella which inverts easily to facilitate optimal donning. The Comfort Liner features a TendresseTM silicone finish resulting in a low coefficient of friction which reduces shear stress on skin. In tests, the TendresseTM finish measured 78% less shear stress than standard silicone.

For more information on the Endolite Comfort Liner, please contact your local Endolite Territory Manager.
