For patients with above-knee amputation or knee diasarticulation, SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. has teamed with Otto Bock, one of the most highly regarded providers of prosthetic components, to offer the C-Leg prosthesis. The C-Leg is a computer-controlled hydraulic knee and foot system that activates the swing and stance phases of gait. This system very closely matches gait traits that are present in the sound limb.

SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. practitioners are specially trained and experienced in fitting the most advanced ischial containment sockets for above-knee prostheses. These sockets provide the highest level of stability and control through anatomical containment of the ischial portion of the pelvis. Our sockets also maximize comfort to the patient with anatomical shape and flexible design. The prosthetic socket component works in harmony with the C-Leg components to create the most advanced above-knee prosthesis available. We carefully evaluate above-knee patients to determine if they are good candidates for the C-Leg, and if they are, we work with the patient and insurance company to expedite the authorization process.
When you receive your C-Leg, we'll program the computer in the knee system to specifically meet your needs. This allows you to walk with the most natural gait, while reducing energy consumption and increasing stability and confidence. Things like walking down stairs, up and down ramps, and even through uneven terrain are all much easier with the C-Leg.
It is very rewarding to be able to provide care that allows our patients to increase their functional level to the point where they can get back to living their lives. Our C-Leg patients report that they are able to perform many activities that were out of their reach before they were fit with their new, computerized prosthesis.
