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.
