knee unit for knee disartic amputation level

Posted By: Jackie on July 9, 2015

Hi all,

I am finding it difficult to identify a great solution for a client who has a knee disarticulation level amputation who is K4 activity level, just over 100kg (220 pounds i think that is!) and is regularly blowing out the hydraulics on the OH5 he is currently using. I'm wondering what people might lean toward using and why based on this limited information.
