Artificial Legs

Artificial Legs

Kartik is a young professional, living in Mumbai. He demonstrates how, in his everyday life, the electronic 3E80 prosthetic knee joint provides him enhanced safety and adaptability. This robust knee joint is designed by Ottobock keeping in mind lifestyles and living conditions in India.

   

In December 2015, Otto Bock invited Heinrich Popow, Paralympic 100m Gold Medallist and World Champion to conduct the first ever ‘Running Clinic’ in India. Over three days Heinrich worked with 12 energetic Indian amputees, teaching them fitness and running techniques while sharing his own inspirational story. All of the participants, as well as everybody at Ottobock re-learned the magic of determination, healthy living, positivity and working with our community.

Nagarjuna, an engineering student and a recent above knee amputee gives a personal account of the first day on his prosthetic leg.... Please watch this video and learn how a the patient regains confidence before exploring what he can do with a C-leg.

South Africa’s Oscar Pistorius made history when he became first double amputee to compete in an athletic event at Olympics 2012 in London, and he went upto semi finals, running on his both artificial legs! Initially banned from international competition on the plea that the artificial legs gives him extra advantage over the abled bodied athletes, Oscar appealed against the ruling and became the first amputee to compete in Olympics.
