The Circleg One is a modular prosthetic leg designed for above- and below-knee amputees. It’s fully customizable to each individual, using only basic tools and minimal effort. The use of reinforced plastics makes the prosthetic very lightweight and comfortable for everyday activities. The Circleg One is manufactured close to our beneficiaries, reducing costs and waiting time while allowing for easy repair and maintenance.
When functionality, affordability and aesthetics merge
Provides a high level of stability at heel strike and increased ground clearance during the swing phase. It has an extension assist spring and a flexion damper at the toe-off to optimize energy consumption and gait cycle. The knee cap protects the mechanism from dirt and enables a kneeling position of up to 150 degrees of knee flexion.
It is designed for active users and has extended durability and desired energy return. It provides a smooth rollover during the stance phase. The plastic-fibreglass material is lightweight yet durable and combined with the design offers a natural, flexible feel during activities. The foot is easily adjustable for size and adaptable to fit both left and right. In use, it is equipped with a cover which protects it from moisture and dirt and makes it look even better.
Connects the foot component with the knee component. The pylon is an industry-standard product that allows, in combination with the pyramid adapters, the adjustability of the Circleg One to each user. The 25cm long aluminium tube is connected to two stainless steel female adapters and is intended for a maximal body weight of 100kg.
Available for both transfemoral and transtibial amputees, the cover gives the Circleg its signature look. It forms a beautiful leg shape and maximum protection for your prosthesis. The lightweight material is impact, water and chemical resistant and can be adjusted in length and shape to suit the individual user. The cover also serves as an ideal base for customized leather or textile wrappings.
«The Circleg One feels very stable and secure and the foot provides me with energy while walking. I like it.»
«I can't wait to show the Circleg One to my family and friends.»
The Circleg One is designed following the international standards for prosthetic and orthotic devices (ISO 10328) and the guidelines of the European Medical Device Regulations (EU MDR). Our products are CE-marked and ensure high technical performance, durability and adaptability to local conditions and diversified needs.
Customizable to everyone
The Circleg One is modular and therefore adjustable individually to each user, with both above- and below-knee amputations. The foot and knee components are customizable with the use of a few tools, simplifying the adjustment and alignment process for P&O specialists, and drastically reducing the working time.
Creating value locally
The Circleg One is designed and engineered with circularity in mind to eliminate waste, re-circulate materials, and regenerate nature. We manufacture our products in Kenya to improve the long waiting times, inefficient and costly procurements and logistical challenges of our customers. Local production and assembly further improve the maintenance and repair of used parts, thus increasing the longevity of our prosthetics and reducing costs for our beneficiaries.
«Very lightweight, great colors, good design – I like the Circleg One!»
«It feels so comfortable!»
Closing the loop
The Circleg One is designed to be fully recyclable. With each cycle, we’re using fewer virgin materials and protecting the earth’s resources.
When the old prosthetic parts are returned, we grind them, melt them down and reuse 100% of the material.
The prosthetic components are manufactured with simple and on-site available production methods.
The assembled components are distributed to local hospitals, NGO’s, health centers and prosthetic workshops in the region.
Fitting & Adjustment
The Circleg components are individually adapted to the users by P&O specialists in the respective health centers.
Use & Repair
The Circleg One is now ready for use. Thanks to its modularity, individual parts can be easily maintained, repaired and replaced.
Broken parts are collected and returned to the material cycle in order to produce new Circleg components.
Co-creation for the win
We designed and engineered the circleg prosthesis in close collaboration with acclaimed experts, academia and industry partners. But more importantly, with amputees and P&O specialists in both, Switzerland and the East African region. This interdisciplinary collaboration has allowed us to create a product that complies with the standards outlined by the EU MDR while fulfilling the needs of both users, P&O specialists and amputees.
