Prosthetics in Motion is Proud to be the first private prosthetic facility in New York City to fit the Otto Bock Genium Bionic Prosthetic Knee System!

The Genium Bionic Prosthetic System is a new technology platform that is the closest to natural function currently available.  This microprocessor controlled knee can anticipate your movements and adapt instantaneously in order to function as close to a natural leg as possible. Changing direction, shifting speeds, ascending stairs, walking backwards – the user can more easily and more intuitively move through the activites of daily life.

Practical design features, like 5-day battery life, an additional mode, water resistance, weight limit of 330 lbs. and additional functionality, such as the ability to smoothly step over obstacles makes this the most advanced prosthetic knee on the market. 

The Genium builds on Otto Bock's learnings from more than 14 years as the leader in microprocessor knees, starting with the launch of the C-Leg® in Germany in 1997.  However, this is not a new C-Leg®. The internal workings of the Genium utilize a different approach, making Genium a completely new advanced technology platform for prosthetic knees.
