Home > Biomechatronic Leg Joints—European Inventor Award 2016
The invention pioneered by U.S. biophysicist and rock climber Hugh Herr is an intelligent knee prosthesis system marketed as the Rheo Knee. A ground-breaking invention in the field of prosthetics, the Rheo Knee allows wearers to walk with a natural gait by using a microprocessor that automatically adapts the prosthesis to the stance and walking speed. The Rheo Knee takes prosthetic design into the realm of bionics – the intersection of medicine and information technology.
