Schedule a demo of the new Ossur Rheo Knee 3 at A Step Ahead!
The new Rheo Knee 3 from Ossur is here, and it’s only at A Step Ahead Prosthetics! Designed by Ossur with significant input from A Step Ahead’s prosthetics staff, the Rheo Knee 3 incorporates tried, tested and proven technology and adds a number of improvements to make life that little bit easier.
The Rheo Knee 3 was designed from the ground up to work for a very wide range of people and has features that . It offers the greatest variability in length of any microprocessor knee and will work with any prosthetic foot and ankle available. Low activity users will appreciate the increased and smoother resistance across a wider range of stance flexion. This enhanced support from heel strike to toe off helps increase the confidence of all users on varied terrain, ramps and stairs. The Rheo Knee 3 also features reduced swing phase resistance, which makes it even easier for higher activity users to walk their way and lower activity users to initiate swing.
Rheo Knee 3 helps users to feel in control at all times and takes confidence to a whole new level:
