Microprocessor Knee System from PEL Supply
April 30, 2011
The REL-K® (Rizzoli Electronic Knee), a Fillauer LLC exclusive in the U.S. market, is the latest generation of microprocessor knees. With six control modes, the patient can walk, run, negotiate slopes, climb stairs, or ride a bicycle. An innovative position- and load-sensor system samples angular position, velocity, and knee loads 1,000 times per second. The REL-K instantly works with the patient and adjusts itself for optimum performance. Because the load sensor is located proximally, most foot and pylon combinations can be used, and it is adaptable to a variety of foot and ankle components.
