Orthotics reinvented

The C-Brace® orthotronic mobility system from Ottobock supports the user throughout the entire gait cycle. The system responds intelligently to changing situations.

Slow or fast walking, dynamic heel strike, potential stumbling situations, walking on uneven terrain or inclines, going down stairs step-over-step, and flexion under load while sitting down – it's all possible with the C-Brace® from Ottobock.

The C-Brace® offers a high level of safety. This means that users no longer have to constantly concentrate on the orthosis, but instead can focus on their surroundings.

The SSCO® (Stance and Swing Phase Control) system includes custom fabricated thigh, calf and foot components. A sensor-integrated, dynamic carbon fibre composite spring connects the foot section to the lower leg section.
An ankle moment sensor transmits signals via a cable to the microprocessor-controlled hydraulic knee joint unit. This is embedded in a carbon fibre frame along with the electronics. In addition, a knee angle sensor permanently measures the flexion of the knee joint and its angular velocity.

As a result, the C-Brace® orthotronic mobility system recognises the phase of the gait cycle that the user is in. Accordingly, the hydraulic resistances are regulated, while flexion and extension are controlled.
