A C-Leg or Genium Try Out is a free, no obligation way to test Ottobock’s most advanced microprocessor prosthetic legs for above knee amputees. In this video, you will get an inside look at what to expect from a Try Out.
Key questions about a Try Out
Am I getting the most out of my current prosthesis?
Questions to Consider
- Do you fall more than once a month, or fall for no apparent reason?
- Are you uncomfortable walking in a crowd because you feel unstable?
- Is it hard for you to speed up or slow down easily?
- Do you have to spend a day off your prosthesis at least once a month?
- Do you have a difficult time keeping up with your kids or grandkids?
- Does your prosthesis seem to limit you from doing things you want to do?
- Is it challenging for you to do things like get into your car or tie your shoes?
Am I eligible for a Try Out?
- have an above-knee amputation
- currently wear or have the ability to wear a prosthesis, and
- qualify for prosthetic coverage (or have the ability to pay your prosthetist).
These knees are appropriate for those who have a potential or current “medium to high” activity level – your prosthetist can tell you more. Or, go to the Next Steps page for information on activity levels and what they mean.
How long does a Try Out take?
I'm a little nervous. Where is the Try Out, and who will be there?
What if I don’t currently have a Prosthetist?
What about insurance?
I’m interested, but I still have questions.
Why try a new prosthesis?
