About the Device

We will present our innovative bionic leg.

Our Team will showcase Power Knee and our powered ankle (currently under development) to complete the race with an actively powered leg.

The Power Knee is a motor-powered microprocessor knee. It provides active assistance while walking on level ground, climbing and descending ramps or stairs, and standing up. Power Knee enables users to maintain and regain mobility and participate in the daily activities they enjoy.

The powered ankle being showcased is still under development. The Össur Bionics Team is utilising the CYBATHLON 2024 as this device's first real live test.
