Genium X3

Reclaim all you want to be.

Shift the boundaries.

Physically demanding occupations, playing with children and swimming, sporting activities, seaside holidays and situations where water, dust, sand, dirt or grime play a role – these are the ideal conditions for the Genium X3. Because the greatest strength of the Genium X3 is its robustness. It is waterproof and corrosion-resistant. In addition, it has extras such as the walk-to-run function that lets you easily switch from walking to running. With the Genium X3 you'll encounter hardly any limits.

The Genium X3 is based on the Genium that achieved a breakthrough in prosthetics in 2011. The technology of the Genium allows intuitive and natural motions even when walking backwards, walking up stairs step-over-step, walking at various speeds and stride lengths. Its innovations consistently benefit the Genium X3 as well: in a final step, we have further optimised the natural walking feature. In addition, the joint can now be easily controlled via a Cockpit app.

Battery and electronics

In the Genium X3, the rechargeable battery and electronics are enclosed and protected by the frame and protective cover. The integrated microprocessor coordinates all measurement and control processes.

Knee moment sensor

The knee moment sensor supplies data about the knee moment and therefore provides important information for precisely determining the forces acting on the prosthesis.

Robust protective cover

In order to withstand the many stresses of everyday life, the durable protective cover covers the knee joint and easily stands up to tough conditions. You can choose between two attractive design variants.

Inertial motion unit (IMU)

A gyroscope and acceleration sensors allow the position and speed of the Genium X3 in space to be determined in real time. An angle sensor determines the flexion angle and flexion angle speed of the joint. Prosthesis control is based on movement analysis and additional force measurement.

Intelligent AXON tube adapter

The AXON tube adapter measures both the ankle moment as well as the vertical force acting on the joint in real time. The AXON tube adapter can be connected to a foot without a connecting piece.

Hydraulic unit

The hydraulic unit controls the Genium X3. The flexion and extension resistances are controlled independently by means of two control valves.

Inductive charging

The inductive battery charger is magnetically attached to the back of the knee joint – making easy charging through clothing possible.



Benefits at a glance

Waterproof

You can take a shower, go swimming or work in wet conditions with the Genium X3: Selected materials such as titanium, hard anodised aluminium, stainless steel and high-end coatings combined with especially sealed components protect the joint's sensitive sensor technology and electronics. The Genium X3 is waterproof and corrosion-resistant. It simply opens up previously unimaginable possibilities.

Participating in sports

Approach it as a sport! Designed especially for sporting activities, running mode can keep up. Its functions are adapted to running behaviour and based on the natural model. For example, an increased maximum flexion angle of the knee joint required for running is taken into account. And what if you stir up dust while running? Just do it!

Suitable for everyday use

Walking slowly or fast, climbing stairs step-over-step, crossing obstacles with a natural movement, standing safely on slopes or walking backwards: thanks to the latest computer, sensor and control technology, the Genium X3 responds intelligently to various everyday situations. It adapts to different shoe weights and clothing. The further development of Genium X3 also meets the desire of bilateral transfemoral amputees for more stability.

Smart control via the Cockpit app

With the new Cockpit app for Android devices, the new Genium X3 provides an easy way to control the joint. You can enable or disable functions such as the sitting function. The app also displays additional information such as the battery charge level of the Genium X3. A remote control is of course available as an optional accessory.

The right foot

The Triton prosthetic feet are perfect for highly active users. Especially robust, the Triton Heavy Duty has a high load capacity and is resistant to water and corrosion.

Robust protective cover

In order to withstand the many stresses of everyday life, the protective cover is made from a durable PU material that covers the knee joint. So the Genium X3 stands up to even tough conditions.

Technology

The best way to walk is with a natural, physiological gait – whether on a relaxed stroll through the city or quickly sprinting to the bus. It is exactly this gait that the Genium X3 replicates almost identically, phase for phase. No matter on what surface, no matter at what speed. With the Genium X3, we have bundled this technology under the term “optimised physiological gait” (OPG). It relieves strain on the entire musculoskeletal system, improves wearer comfort and opens up entirely new freedom of movement for the amputee.


(1) PreFlex

The knee joint is already pre-flexed when the heel strikes the ground – the way it is with a natural leg. This is automatically controlled by the electronics. You require less force to initiate a step, since the prosthetic foot makes full-surface contact with the ground more quickly.

(2) Adaptive yielding control

Intelligent knee flexion control with full-surface contact between the prosthetic foot and the ground depends on the forces acting on the prosthesis. You can negotiate hills, uneven terrain and slopes more safely, pay less attention to controlling your prosthesis and use it intuitively. Flexion also dampens the impact of the foot, which decreases compensating movements and therefore significantly reduces subsequent orthopaedic problems as well.

(3) Dynamic stability control

This is an innovative and patented method for monitoring all movement situations. Six different parameters are continuously recorded in order to define the optimum switching point between the stance and swing phase. For you, this translates into enhanced safety, including when walking backwards or taking side steps.

(4) Adaptive swing phase control

The quality of the swing phase with the Genium X3 is comparable to the natural model. The lower leg pendulum movement is precisely limited to 65° of flexion – regardless of the walking speed. The increased ground clearance minimises the danger of tripping and falling. Even on slopes, the angle-independent swing phase ensures sufficient ground clearance. There is no limitation of step variance, whether you are taking short or long steps, or walking slowly, fast or at irregular speed. The system even adapts intelligently to the respective shoe soles and clothing.

Prosthesis training

A prosthesis is only as good as the user's ability to handle it! The Genium X3 is an innovative knee joint that offers you numerous functions. However, these functions have to be learned and practised, especially in the beginning. This is the only way you can fully utilise the functionality of the Genium X3.

With “Genium Gait Training”, Ottobock has developed a training programme that instructs therapists, technicians and users in detail on how to conduct efficient gait training. This gait training can be used for the Genium X3 as well. The programme is illustrated with clear videos. Activities which are practised include walking backwards, going down stairs and negotiating slopes as well as the Genium X3 stance function, sitting, climbing stairs step-over-step and much more. Numerous exercises have been selected to increase safety and confidence early on in using the Genium X3.

Ideal prosthesis components

Triton Low Profile

The Triton Low Profile makes the excellent functionality of the Triton available even to users with limited space for the integration of a prosthetic foot.

Triton Heavy Duty

The Triton Heavy Duty is especially strong and robust. This is due to an adapter made of titanium. Non-corrosive metal parts make the foot water-resistant as well.

SiOCX prosthetic sockets

The SiOCX TF socket system, which offers optimum adhesion and an improved sense of the surroundings in addition to a high level of comfort during sitting and wear, is available with an open and closed outer socket and various colours for the inner socket. The combination of skin-friendly, high-tech materials such as HTV silicone, carbon and flexible Dyneema woven fabric ensures maximum comfort, hygiene and functionality. Experience how sitting in comfort, optimum adhesion in the prosthetic socket and effective protection for sensitive areas of the residual limb improve your everyday quality of life.
