Reference number 3R60=VC
Max. user weight 125kg
Type of Knee Mechanical
Improved socket suspension and relief for the residual limb

The 3R60 vacuum knee joint has a mechanical vacuum pump integrated into the upper joint section. Active volume management ensures a better connection between the residual limb and prosthesis.

  • The intake valve is connected to the prosthetic socket by flexible tubing.
  • When the knee joint is flexed, the integrated pump generates a vacuum in the socket.
  • The outlet valve discharges air and fluids.
  • Generating a vacuum is also possible when cycling.
  • The purely mechanical pump is fully integrated into the knee joint.
  • The 3R60 vacuum can be combined with existing vacuum socket systems.

Integrated vacuum pump
Integrated vacuum pump

The integrated pump generates a vacuum in the prosthetic socket for active volume management and improves suspension between the prosthesis and the residual limb.

EBS control
EBS control

The pivoting mount serves as a visual control for measuring the efficiency of the EBS function.

EBS unit for enhanced comfort and safety
EBS unit for enhanced comfort and safety

The EBS unit (ergonomically balanced stride) consists of a spring-hydraulics combination that can be individually adapted to the user’s weight and activity level for greater comfort and improved everyday safety.

Comfortable swing phase hydraulics
Comfortable swing phase hydraulics

The resistances of the swing phase hydraulics are independently adjustable. This supports the easy initiation of the swing phase and enables the user to walk at a wider range of speeds.

5-axis polycentric unit for stance phase flexion mode and swing phase mode
5-axis polycentric unit for stance phase flexion mode and swing phase mode

The design allows for two different modes of operation: swing phase mode and stance phase flexion mode. It also increases ground clearance in the swing phase.
