Microprocessors controlled knees provide a more sophisticated method of control to a prosthetic knee. These more complex knee joints are designed to help you walk with a much more stable and efficient gait that more closely resembles a natural walking pattern.
Lower Extremity Prosthetics
Transtibial (Below Knee) A transtibial prosthesis is an artificial limb that replaces a leg missing below the knee and commonly called prosthetic leg below the knee . Transtibial amputees are usually able to regain normal movement more readily than someone with a transfemoral amputation, due in large part to retaining the knee, which allows for easier movement.
In the prosthetic industry a trans-tibial prosthetic leg is often referred to as a “BK” or below the knee prosthesis.
