Ottobock C-Brace Lower-Limb Orthosis

The new C-Brace by Ottobock HealthCare uses the world’s first mechatronic stance and swing phase control orthosis (SSCO) system, introduced with the original C-Brace, to control stance and swing phase with microprocessor sensor technology. Building upon the features of the first-generation C-Brace, the new C-Brace is smaller and lighter, allowing it to be worn under clothing. The new C-Brace analyzes the entire gait cycle dynamically and in real time, including flexion under load, navigating slopes, walking on uneven terrain, and descending stairs step-over-step, defining an entirely new level of mobility. The user can configure joint settings within the Cockpit app or by reading the status on the LED display. The stumble recovery feature engages if the sensors read a moment of instability, giving the user the necessary time to recover. Patients with lower extremity neurological or orthopedic indications are candidates for the new C-Brace.
