The Plié 2.0

Plie 2.0 Knee

The Plié 2.0 integrates high-performance processing capabilities and a cutting-edge hydraulic system, making it the most responsive MPC knee ever developed. A finely tuned control system enables the Plié 2.0 to respond to ambulatory stimuli within 10 milliseconds. Consequently, users can stay in stance phase longer, take smaller steps and change walking speeds more fluidly. A proprietary position sensor and patent-pending load cell built into the frame of the Plié 2.0 provide input to advanced algorithms utilized by the microprocessor to control stance and swing, and stumble recovery parameters.
