What Are Knee Prosthetics?
A knee replacement is a prosthetic that replicates the function of a natural knee joint. Some prosthetic kneedesigns contain modern artificial intelligence, pneumatics, and rotational bearings for improved functionality and natural movement.
The main benefits of a prosthetic knee joint are improved mobility and stability, reduced pain, improved alignment and balance, easier transfers, increased walking speed, and better fitness. All of which significantly improve the life quality of those with a missing knee.

How much does a prosthetic knee weigh?
The average weight of a prosthetic knee varies depending on the type of device; however, the lightest knee replacements currently available weigh between 0.77 lbs and 1.5 lbs.
Is a knee prosthesis the same as a knee replacement?
A knee replacement is not the same as a prosthetic knee socket. A knee replacement involves the surgical implantation of an artificial knee joint. On the other hand, prosthetic knee sockets are custom-made devices that fit over the end of a residual limb following an amputation to provide an interface between the human limb and the prosthetic device.
