Single-chamber pneumatics control the swing phase

 

In swing phase, the smooth yet powerful single-chamber pneumatics

– one chamber each for flexion and extension damping – do not run out of air, even at various walking speeds.

Harmonious flexion and extension movements, and therefore

an approximation of the physiological gait pattern, are made

possible. Here the joint geometry effectively shortens the prosthesis

during swing, resulting in more ground clearance.

 

Four-axis polycentric structure ensures stance phase

stability

 

In extension, the instantaneous centre of rotation is

located above the joint and behind the load line, resulting in

high stability in stance phase. The integrated extension assist

spring ensures that the lower leg of the prosthesis is always

extended at heel strike and weight can be safely supported on

the prosthesis side. This is especially advantageous when the

user takes small compensating steps, turns in a circle or walks

in confined areas.

The Walnut Medical P-Leg offers numerous advantages, not only whilst walking.

 

When sitting or kneeling, the large maximum flexion angle of

145° and the low system height when flexed make it

both comfortable and practical.

 

Easy to fit

 

Flexion and extension dampening can be separately and

individually customized to the needs of the user

This effectively reduces the working time of the prosthetist and

leads to rapid fitting success.
