ProCarve Knee Joint
The ProCarve sports prosthetic system includes a monocentric, aluminium sports knee equipped with a highperformance hydraulic damping element and a disengagement function to make sitting down more comfortable. The damping element – a combination of a pneumatic spring and a hydraulic unit – ensures dynamic movement. The individually adjustable air pressure controls the flexion movement and the hydraulics dampen the extension movement. When re-engaged, the flexion angle is limited to 67°. In order to sit down, the user can bend the knee joint easily without damping simply by pulling on the attached belt. The maximum flexion angle when disengaged is 80°. Together with the ProCarve foot component, this provides a targeted and coordinated system solution for users with an above knee amputation or knee disarticulation.
