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

Rheo Knee

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.

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.

WillowWood Announces New Alpha Basic Liners

WillowWood Announces New Alpha Basic Liners

WillowWood is pleased to offer its new Alpha Basic Liners for transtibial and transfemoral applications. Introduced at the 2015 Academy Annual Meeting, the Alpha Basic Liners are available from WillowWood and its distributors.

Alpha Basic Liners pair Alpha Classic Gel, widely-known for its comfort, with a flexible fabric. Low-activity amputees unfamiliar with Alpha Liners may now consider Alpha Basic Liners since they retrofit with common liner profiles. 

Key details of Alpha Basic Liners include:

  • A flexible fabric that allows for easy donning and comfortable knee flexion.
  • To minimize pistoning, locking liners feature one-way stretch fabric rather than a constrictive distal matrix.
  • The liner’s six millimeter symmetrical profile does not thin behind the knee.
  • Six sizes are offered in both cushion and locking liners.
  • An optional large-diameter umbrella is available in select sizes for use by transfemoral amputees.

For information, contact WillowWood at 800.848.4930 or visit willowwoodco.com.


Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

This unique AFO has been designed for Chopart amputees that wish to remain active. Often a traditional full length AFO for this patient will be stiff - feeling unnatural. Using a hinged ankle and flexible foot plate with a segmented dynamic filler allows flexion before providing a ‘stop’ that protects the residuum and prevents shoe vamp collapse. The PTB design and the anterior shell re-distribute ground reaction forces up the lower extremity.
