C-leg

If you’ve experienced an injury that required your leg to be amputated above the knee, then chances are you are looking for a high-performance, above-knee prosthesis that will allow you to still enjoy many of life’s activities. At Georgia Prosthetics, we are committed to providing you with leading prosthetic solutions that give you all of the comforts, features and benefits of what is available in a modern prosthetic leg.

Below are a few of the key reasons we recommend the C-Leg to many of our patients.

How a C-Leg Prosthetic Can Help You

While each person’s situation is different (which is why we encourage you to contact us for a consultation), the C-Leg prosthesis was the first microprocessor-controlled knee, making it a new and superior prosthesis.

Unlike previous prosthetic devices that many individuals claim were rigid, or did not allow full freedom of motion, the C-Leg is the first device of its kind; sending up to 50 items of feedback per second, and adjusting itself based on your needs, exactly when you need it.

Enjoy Increased Stability and Flexibility Jogging or Riding a Bike

The C-Leg prosthetic allows individuals to enjoy a wide variety of activities including but not limited to:

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Bike riding
  • Standing for long periods of time
  • Giving somebody time to recover from a stumble, thus preventing falling
  • Allows for descending stairs foot over foot
  • Ascending and descending inclines, which are really difficult for the lower extremity amputee

and much more. With a C-Leg prosthetic, many of our patients have said they have been able to “get their life back (see our testimonials).”

The technology that comprises the C-Leg was engineered and designed to reproduce the functions of a human leg precisely, which is why so many people enjoy their C-Leg prosthesis.
