  • What is a bionic leg?
    The main objective of biomechanics is the reproduction of function and movement mechanisms of the human body. Biomechanics thus allow an amputee who has artificial limbs to control it thanks to the targeted muscle innervation process. Generally the sensors are installed in the healthy leg, the information is sent to different motors of the robotic prosthetic via an artificial intelligence module.
  • What is a cover?
    Covers sit over all the parts between the socket and the end of the prosthetic For comfort and aesthetic reasons: you can customize your own cover to fit personality
