    c leg

    Hi Akamp I am a cleg user and the cleg is the best thing i ever done the battery can not be changed and it lasts 36 hours it can be charged for a car cigarette lighter and if you can not get one it will keep working while in a safety mode while it is flat it just locks up and goes into like a lock knee mode. I have tried other legs and i would never go back if you have any questions please just ask Ben Tullipan

    C Leg

    H i Slim I am a ak and bk amputee i currently have a c leg and it is the best thing i have ever done it makes walking very easy and make the gate look very natual i would not use any other leg.When you buy the c leg you have the optoin to have it serviced ever year at no cost in which it will come back with any new updates to the micro processor.The c leg has 2 mode one is set for walking the other you can set for what ever you want like riding a bike or tennis or what ever. I was told that i would never walk again due to my injuries from the bali bombing,I was givin a couple of legs to try and the c leg was thee only one that gave me a natural gate patern and easy of walking i can now do what ever i want. The other benifit of the cleg is stairs it will allow you to walk down stairs one foot after the other. if you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask me Ben Tullipan komodotemple@optusnet.com.au
