Stable, healthy standing

It makes a difference

Commonplace for others, quality of life for you

Are situations that require extended standing challenging for you? With the Intuitive Stance offered by our microprocessor-controlled knee joints, you won’t have to avoid moments like these: The joints “know” whether you are standing and relaxing, or want to initiate your next step. Intuitive Stance adapts to the current situation. Evenly distributing your weight between both legs can prevent damaging compensating movements, no matter whether you are standing on an even surface or an incline. Try it for yourself and find out what joint best meets your needs.

Relaxed standing, without having to think about it

Do you often have to stand because your work demands it or your hobby requires it? Intuitive Stance, a special function of our electronic knee joints, supports you while standing. Intuitively and without having to permanently think about it. Try it for yourself today.

Comfortable standing – including on uneven ground

Grilling in the garden or playing in the meadow with your granddaughter – with the Intuitive Stance offered by our mechatronic knee joints, you no longer have to avoid activities that require extended standing – including on inclines or uneven ground.

Do you find standing for extended periods difficult? Then give our solution a try. Thanks to the Intuitive Stance offered by our electronic knee joints, your stance is more stable and comfortable – even when things take a bit longer.
