Clark Williams USMC Veteran is the first Ability patient to receive a new Ottobock C-Brace
The microprocessor-controlled C-Brace leg orthosis opens up entirely new possibilities for freedom of movement. Sitting down in a controlled manner, going up and down slopes and inclines, walking on uneven terrain, and going down the stairs one foot at a time, step-over-step - the C-Brace is the first to make this all possible.
The new sensor technology makes the entire gait pattern even more dynamic and responsive. Additionally, the C-Brace responds to everyday situations in real-time ensuring the safety, stability, and confidence in users everyday lives.
The C-Brace offers additional advantages: it’s smaller and can be worn under clothing, and it’s lighter so the user doesn’t need to exert as much effort and energy when walking. The user can also change settings on their joint – such as switching to cycling mode – using a smartphone app.
