VGK-XS for children
The VGK-XS is the world’s first Fluidic Processor Knee (FPK) for children. The VGK-XS has been designed to adapt to the life of an active child, and grow with them through adolescence.
Sophisticated stance and swing phase control supports fast and slow walking, leg-over-leg stair descent, and exploration of uneven terrain. In case of a misstep, the stumble recovery feature gives the child time to regain their balance. The VGK-XS also has an optional cycling mode.
The smallest and lightest in the VGK range, this knee gives children access to all the features found in VGK adult knees. The VGK-XS is suitable for children and adolescents aged ~7+.
