Lower Limb Feet and Knees

Your options for lower limb prosthetics will in part be determined by your activity level, and general needs. K levels are used worldwide to describe a person’s capacity for activities using a lower limb prosthesis. This guides the type of prosthetic equipment that will best suit their lifestyle and ability. Prosthetic clinicians have a range of tests and measures to determine your K level both before and after receiving a lower limb prosthesis. Some prostheses will cross over K levels. You should discuss your particular needs with your prosthetic provider. Google search any device for full manufacturer information.
