The Rheo II has very recently been upgraded to the Rheo III. We at Deist Orhtotists has also kept ourselves up to date by completing the certification course presented by Őssur.
The improvements are as follows:
The RHEO KNEE 3 provides the most natural knee function among all microprocessor knees because it continuously adapts to the user and the environment while providing perfect balance of stability and dynamics.
Effortless swing initiation enables a smoother gait, even in crowds and confined spaces
Advanced actuator and resistance control ensure best possible resistance, e.g. more support in stair descent and minimum effort needed in level ground gait
Constant power spring provides natural progression in swing
Five-sensor gait detection, including new gyroscope technology, ensures stability and dynamic response in every situation
Magnetorheologic technology enables an instant response so that users never have to wait for the knee to catch up with them.
A 30 day trial period is available on all Őssur’s products. Contact us to trial walk your Rheo III today!
RHEO KNEE 3 offers increased and smoother resistance across a wider range of stance flexion.
This enhanced support from heel strike to toe off helps increase the confidence of all users on varied terrain, ramps and stairs.
This is especially reassuring to lower activity users like Ellie.
..dynamic enough for Tim.
We didn't sacrifice the swing dynamics that the RHEO KNEE is known for and that higher active users like Tim expect.
In fact, we improved them! By further reducing swing phase resistance, we made it even easier for higher activity users to walk their way and lower activity users to initiate swing.
Now, whether he is cycling, hiking, or working in the garage, Tim feels he "wastes" less energy getting around.
Dynamic gait with added confidence
RHEO KNEE 3 helps users to feel in control at all times and takes confidence to a whole new level:
Feel totally confident and safe, even on stairs, ramps and uneven ground
Change speed and direction with absolute ease
Move more naturally, even in confined spaces. Think less about what to do and how best to move
Walk farther, using less energy, and maintain an active lifestyle
The bonus for the average user is that it is ultra - stable, while the more active person will benefit from the extra functionality.
