The MPK's knee is equipped with an on-board microprocessor that receives feedback from sensors inside the joints to "learn" or "react" the user's walking characteristics and adjust the stiffness of the knee to suit different walking speeds, terrains, and conditions. Your prosthetist can use the laptop or tablet to adjust the control parameters to fine-tune the features of the knee.

The benefits of prosthetic knee joint control:

Reduced cognitive needs: Patients do not have to think about using it more.

Excellent safety: If the knee is found to trip, the knee will automatically harden.
