Knee Survey
« on: July 28, 2008, 04:41:48 PM »
Time for another poll i think...
For all AK's... In your opinion, what type of Prosthetic Knee have you found work best for you?
Options
  - Locked (i.e. you walk with a stiff knee)
  - Stabilised (i.e. has a breaking unit in it e.g. ESK)
  - Hydraulic (knee uses hydraulics e.g. Mauch, 3R80, Mercury Hi-Acivity)
  - Computer Controlled (has a microprocessor in e.g. C-Leg, Smart IP)
  - Poycentric (uses alignment to control stability e.g. Total Knee, KX06)
  - Conventional (good old fashioned metal/wood leg!)

Note, you can vote twice as some knees use 2 different methods e.g. Total Knee, KX06
