New C-leg (3rd generation) is anything but a C-leg
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:01:47 PM »
I got it today & it just walks so much better than the 2nd generation C-leg.  There is a huge difference walking uphill/downhill with it.

Frankly, I don't know why Otto Bock is calling it the "new C-leg" when it feels like it's completely re-engineered.

I couldn't believe how it walks uphill & downhill better than the new rheo. (I am talking about the new rheo knee before ossur began shipping out knees with defective parts in it; no one should get the rheo knee as the defect makes the knee quite dangerous.)

I have a suspicion that the new C-leg is really a version of genium knee without the gyroscope.

Any AK getting ready for a new knee should definitely try out the 3rd gen. C-leg.

It's simply awesome. 

The rep from Otto Bock won't tell you this but I just found out you can actually jog with this new leg.  LOL

That just solidifies my suspicion even more that this really is a watered down genium knee.
