New Freedom of Movement
The C-Brace allows users to experience a whole new world of movement. Users can walk slowly or quickly, navigate slopes or uneven terrain, avoid trip hazards, descend stairs step-over-step, or flex the leg while it’s under load.
Enhanced Safety while Walking
The C-Brace responds in real time. This makes users feel safe even when they face potential trip hazards – because they can take steps or sit down with the knee flexed, and can also walk on uneven terrain or slopes.
App Control for Users & Professionals
Users can control their C-Brace with the Cockpit app; for example, switching from walking mode to cycling mode.
Simplified Fabrication Process
The C-Brace is fully customized to each individual patient. Patients can request a trial to see if they are a candidate prior to receiving a C-Brace.
