The knee locks and thus secures the patient whenever he puts his weight on his foot up to 15° of angle of flexion. The maximum angle of flexion can be set to avoid the stumbling patient from falling.
The knee requires very little energy from the patient while not needing any external power source. It’s aleopneumatic shock absorber removes unwanted vibrations which results in a very fluid and natural gait.
Purely mechanical, it is robust and easy to maintain.
Performance while being affordable
Being fully mechnanical, it keeps manufacturing cost low and allows an affordable price.
From the amputee’s very first steps up to his ultimate activity level autonomy, the ProSecure knee gives trust, accompanies the patient and values his efforts.
The ProSecure prosthetic knee brings a fully functional solution relying purely on a simple mechanic principles without any need for electronic controls.
The heart of the knee harbors a freewheel driven by the ground reaction (load line) when the patient touches the ground with his prosthetic foot. It is achieved not only in a straight legged stance but also when the knee is flexed at 15° max.
This locking mechanism doesn’t require any adjustments and adapts automatically, among other things, to the patient’s weight and to the intensity of the ground reaction. It is either on or off.
This innovative knee is the only one of its kind to support the patient’s weight by locking in flexion while at the same time allowing the leg to extend. In all situations, the knee allows the leg to extent and therefore can really help a patient to get up from a chair for example.
In discerning the coveted Camille Mathieu Prize to Henri Blanc, the HandiTecAM foundation recognise the ProSecure knee as being in the best position to raise, facilitate and enrich the life of handicapped people. This 4 000€ prize will allow further development of the ProSecure knee. The award ceremony will take place on the June 10th.

We have got an enthusiastic response from the crowd! The OrthoProSecure knee gets a lot of attention; the knee is a technological breakthrough and drives conversations mainly among orthotists and prosthetists. Coming from his social values of cooperation, Henri Blanc, founder of OrthoProSecure, wants to create a prosthetic knee adapted to the resources and needs Read more about Our presence at the 8th FATO congress in Togo – Experience Feedback[…]
