Facebook Live: Ottobock New Bracing System

Join us for a Facebook Live event with Ottobock’s Ted Friedmann to learn about their new C-Brace – The world’s first mechatronic stance and swing phase control bracing system. The brace supports both the stance and swing phase with a microprocessor and sensor technology. The functionality of conventional bracing is limited to releasing and locking the knee joint. However, the C-Brace, with its microprocessor-controlled hydraulic unit, supports the user during the entire gait cycle and adapts to everyday situations in real-time. Navigating slopes, walking on uneven terrain, or going down stairs with increased support and stability is all possible with the C-Brace. This event will introduce the C-Brace and the benefits it can provide in daily life.
