In activities such as snowboarding, which have often been impossible for amputees to enjoy with an artificial limb, the XT9 works naturally providing constant support and dynamic flexion as the rider turns, absorbs bumps and rough terrain, and even performs jumps and tricks.The heavy duty support which the XT9 knee offers an amputee is what allows so many high energy sports to now be enjoyed. The XT9 High Activity Knee has adjustable stance which allows the user to set an active stance which suites his or her activity and level of ability. Unlike other prosthetic knees, the XT9 is capable of supporting the user in an activity stance and works dynamically as a natural limb would do.
The XT9 Prosthetic Knee is made to the highest standards possible. It is the only high activity knee that is warranted for water use and high impact from extreme sports! Each piece of the limb is CNC machined from aircraft grade T6 aluminum alloy, stainless steel and high strength titanium. That makes this prosthesis one of a kind and a new leader in its field.
All aluminum parts on the XT9 prosthesis are anodized to military spec. "Mil-A-8625 Type 2 Class 2" giving them ultimate corrosion resistance, toughness against abrasion and an overall aesthetically pleasing finish. This process is just part of what protects the XT9 against corrosion and helps make it the first water proof, high activity artificial limb on the market.
All components of the XT9 are anodized aluminum, titanium and stainless steel. It is the only high activity prosthesis designed to endure use in all conditions.
The XT9's design and purpose make it an extremely versatile and revolutionary prosthetic leg. Amputees are using this limb to accomplish things that were once never dreamed of with an artificial limb!
