E-MAG Active


Code: E-Mag

Manufacturer: Ottobock

Short Description

Mobility with improved safety
The E-MAG Active was developed for users who, due to paresis or a complete failure of the knee extensor muscles, are unable to stabilise their knee joint unassisted.

An intelligent sensor system measures the leg position while walking and controls the orthosis joint accordingly. Therefore the knee joint is unlocked automatically while walking: the leg can swing freely. The PreLock function securely locks your knee joint for the stance phase even if you have not fully extended your leg yet. You can stand safely and walk more naturally with the E-MAG Active.

Even users who have no ankle functionality whatsoever are able to use the E-MAG Active.

Walking Naturally

Many orthosis users share certain requirements, such as a more natural gait pattern and a desire to not always have to concentrate on their movements. Intelligent electronics ensure that you can walk more naturally and smoothly. A magnet automatically opens the joint, and your hands remain free. You can focus on other things in life that are important to you – your family, activities or hobby.

An Improved Posture

The E-MAG Active makes your movements easier: You can do more again and be more active than before. This can have a positive effect on your muscles and your overall physical health, for example your circulatory system. Thanks to the more natural gait pattern, the need for compensating movements is virtually eliminated, relieving strain on the contralateral side of the body and therefore preventing symptoms of wear.


After changing the E-MAG Active to unlocked mode using a small button, you can even go cycling, for example on a therapy bike. Other sports activities such as Nordic walking are possible as well thanks to the joint's intelligent control unit.

Suitable for Everyday Use

Its enclosed design protects the E-MAG Active against external influences such as impacts and clothing getting caught. The joint surfaces form a uniform, enclosed surface even when the joint is flexed.

Long Daily Duration of Use

Depending on the movements you perform, the E-MAG Active lasts for up to 5,000 steps. This corresponds to about 8 km and is usually sufficient for a day. You can easily charge the battery again overnight.

Quick and Quiet

Continual operating noises can be perceived as bothersome and unpleasant in many situations. The magnet works quickly and quietly when unlocking the joint during walking, making it inconspicuous in everyday life.
