As the original microprocessor knee with more fittings worldwide than any other MPK, C-Leg is the most trusted
prosthetic knee joint available for above-knee amputees. With more than 55 published studies proving C-Leg’s
clinical benefits, it’s easy to see why:

• Users experience up to an 80% reduction in falls*
• 94% of users prefer C-Leg over their previous knee**
• 70% of users state improved stance on slopes, comfort while walking and perceived safety

while standing**
• Users report improved walking at all speeds when compared to their previous prosthesis***

Not all microprocessor knees are the same. Know the difference.

• Request a C-Leg Trial.
