This is the Genium X3 by Ottobock, a high-tech, waterproof lower limb prosthesis that allows individuals to swim, jog and cycle and walk smoother with a more natural gait – and just overall enjoy a more active lifestyle sans limitations. Built out of titanium and stainless steel, it has a protective seal that shields the joint’s sensitive sensor and electronic systems against dust, sand, and moisture.
The German-created Genium X3 is equipped with OPG technology integrated into the leg prosthesis that enables an “optimized physiological gait” even while navigating rough terrain at various speeds. Its built-in sensors constantly analyze the wearer’s current gait phase. In turn, the smart microprocessor-controlled prosthesis responds immediately.
