It should have horizontal movement while rotating, so it is gradually replaced by a multi-axis knee joint, which is different from a single-axis knee joint. Compared with the knee joint, the multi-axis knee joint is stable during the support phase and is prone to transition to the swing phase.   The design of the connecting rod structure can well make the amputee maintain stability when the heel is on the ground.

The shortcomings of restricting knee flexion during the whole gait, and compared with hydraulic knee joints, it reduces the weight and reduces the failure rate.   In the support period, the control method is basically to use muscle strength to control at will.

Knee joint The swing phase of the hip joint is played by the flexors and extensors of the hip. If the hip flexor and extensor muscles are strong and the residual limb is long, the control device can be adjusted to a fast walking state.
