VGK-X for lightweight adults

Overview

With its short build height and a weight of only 850 grams, the VGK-X is an ultra lightweight knee without compromising functionality.

The VGK-X provides secure stance as a default-stance knee, with easy initiation into swing. In case of a misstep, the VGK-X has stumble recovery, which gives you time to regain balance.

The VGK-X also features sophisticated stance and swing phase control, which supports variable walking speeds, leg-over-leg stair descent, and use on uneven terrain. Whether you are carrying a heavy backpack or speeding up to catch the bus, the VGK-X can adapt in real-time.

The VGK-X is a Fluidic Processor Knee (FPK), which means high performance without the need for charging. This knee has been designed for adults up to 80 kg.
