Prosthetic Knees

Prosthetic Knees Designed for All Levels of Lower Limb Amputees

Our award-winning range of products are designed to help individuals achieve the best possible mobility, function, comfort and long-term health after leg amputation or other pathology.

Mechanical, Hydraulic and Microprocessor Knees


Our mechanical knees are designed for all lower limb amputees; from those with limited mobility to amputees that are extremely active.

Locking and free option knees such as our ESK+ and BMK2

    • Weight activated stance control 
    • Safe and smooth gait for moderately active Level K2-K4 wearers

      • Greater durability and enhanced resistance range
      • Easy to fine-tune
      • Water resistant for active users
      • Good for K3 wearers


What is a microprocessor-controlled knee? 

You may have heard the term "bionic knee", "computerized knee" or "Computer-controlled knee". These terms are synonymous with "microprocessor-controlled knee". This type of prosthetic knee contains more complex knee joints than a mechanical knee. They use a computer that offers safer walking with less effort.

Blatchford's microprocessor-controlled hydraulic knee, the Orion3 offers:

    • Exceptional stability on slopes, steps and varying terrains
    • Featuring a range of stance resistance
    • Adapts hydraulic resistance in real time, providing the user with confidence and stability


Blatchford's integrated microprocessor limb system, the Linx:

      • Mimics the complex structure of the human leg by actively sensing and analysing data on the user movement, activity and terrain

      • Provides a coordinated stream of instructions to the hydraulic support system

      • Detects stumble in real-time, automatically adjusting to allow the user to catch themselves to avoid a fall

Become an Ambassador of Mobility!

Our Ambassadors are busy telling their stories and helping others in their community. They are raising public awareness around limb loss and care about making a positive difference in people's lives.

They are inspirational, motivational and unstoppable positive forces in the lower limb amputee community!

Please consider joining our Ambassadors of Mobility! We'd love to have you share your experience as a caregiver in the amputee community!

Understanding Prosthetics

Whether you are a new amputee or have lived with amputation for awhile, prosthetic technology can be overwhelming. We explain some of the technology behind today’s prosthetics and how Blatchford uses the natural working of the human body to influence the design of our products.
