From rehabilitation, to the home and office, to the gym and the trail, RHEO KNEE XC confidently goes anywhere. Whether rehabilitating on a spin cycle, navigating tight spaces, strolling around town, or hiking a trail in the rain, RHEO KNEE XC provides the perfect balance of stability and dynamics.

Key Features

  • Weatherproof design allows exposure to splashing of water.
  • Magnetorheologic technology enables an instant response so that users never have to wait for the knee to catch up with them.
  • Smart gait detection, including kinematic sensor technology, ensures stability and dynamic response in every situation.
  • Advanced actuator and resistance control ensure best possible resistance, e.g. more support in stair descent and minimum effort needed in level ground gait.
  • Advanced extension assist mechanism.
  • Effortless swing initiation enables a smoother gait, even in crowds and confined spaces.
  • Allows high impact activities such as running and jogging.
  • Extension lock mechanism, to lock the knee in full extension and increase safety and comfort under specific circumstances.

More Dynamic Solutions

In December 2016 NHS England approved funding for the use of microprocessor knees (MPKs) for patients with the Clinical Commissioning Policy on Microprocessor controlled prosthetic knees. Patients that meet the criteria set forth by NHS England will be allowed to try out two separate microprocessor knees, to allow for optimal fit. The details of the selection process is outlined in the Clinical Commissioning Policy, but we recommend patients contact their local prosthetic centre to ask about funding and suitability. You may also reach out to our Össur Experts if that suits you better.

To find out more and to see if you’re eligible read our guide to Microprocessor knee funding.
