A new option for enhanced safety and increased confidence
Since its launch in 2015, the Kenevo microprocessor knee fundamentally changed prosthetics for low to moderately active amputees. This prosthetic knee was designed to provide you with a greater sense of security so you can live the life you deserve.
Microprocessor-controlled knees have been shown to reduce the risk of uncontrolled falls by up to 80%1 in moderately active persons, as well as improve the indicators of fall risk, such as fear of falling.2
With key features such as Stumble Recovery Plus, supported stand-to-sit and sit-to-stand, wheelchair mode, and putting on the prosthesis while seated, it is no wonder users feel more confident and independent than ever before.

Kenevo – safe and supportive
Supported sitting down
The Kenevo automatically detects when you sit down and supports you. Even if your movement is slow, you stay in control, because the joint bends accordingly slowly. This feature makes the Kenevo a very stable leg prosthesis. With your hands, you can hold on to the chair or a walking aid while sitting down.
Sit and stand up with ease
Do you sometimes need to pause a moment as you are sitting down or standing up? If yes, don’t worry! The Kenevo automatically detects when you start to sit down or stand up, and will support both movements so you do not fall into or back in the chair. Since no manual adjustments of the knee are necessary, this leaves your hands free so you can use an armrest or assistive device, if needed.
