The benefits of being fitted with a Genium have been scientifically proven in multiple studies.
With the market launch of the Genium leg prosthesis in 2011, Ottobock opened up entirely new horizons for prosthesis wearers: an unprecedented, natural gait pattern, taking stairs step-over-step, overcoming obstacles, walking backwards, relaxed standing – to name just a few examples. For the first time, people with a transfemoral amputation experienced a range of new functions that provided perfect support for their desire to live a more active and independent everyday life. The benefits of being fitted with a Genium have been scientifically proven in multiple studies.
Based on human movement as the model, the Genium has been developed even further. The result is a noticeably smoother gait and even better support and safety in everyday situations, for instance on ramps, in confined spaces or when changing walking speeds. The leg prosthesis can be configured with the Cockpit app, which is now available not only for Android but Apple (iOS) devices as well.
Aaron is a passionate father. More than anything else, it is important to him to be able to keep up with his active family. Amputated on both sides, he faces every possible challenge – whether in work or leisure. The Genium features two different stance functions that permit resting on the prosthesis side. The result is continual relief for the sound side.
