AK Solutions for AK Knees
Welcome to the latest, most advanced world of True Variable Cadence with the micro-processor controlled SLK. This knee utilizes the very advanced “Blank Slate Technology” – the computer is pre-programmed with what gait is, but the parameters of that gait self-program as the amputee walks.The SLK is constantly learning and changing to your individual patient’s gait pattern and activities. Therefore, you are required to do very little adjustment and no programming to achieve unmatched stability with the most anatomical and efficient gait ever.

Why do I need a custom design knee?
Everyone is different… The stability of your natural knee is unique to you (your natural knee rotates around a multiple-axis in a way that differs from person to person). Now that you understand why a multi-axis knee is superior to a single-axis knee, you want to know why you want a multi-axis 5-Bar knee rather than a multi-axis 4-bar knee.
Why do I need a Custom Design Knee?
Nobody quite walks the same way… Therefore, it is extremely important to dial-in your unique stride. 4-Bar Multi-Axis Knees provide an excellent “off the shelf” stability.
But, only DAW’s 5-Bar Stance Flexion Knees allow your Practitioner to duplicate (with pin-point accuracy) the dialing-in of stability and smoothness of stride.

DAWSkin is the Ultimate Skin
To provide a natural touch and feel to your prosthesis, some kind of foam covering is used. Some foams are very soft, others firm. All these foams have a very limited life expectancy due to the usual environmental hazards including air humidity, dust, acid rain not to mention tears occurring when bumping into an obstacle. Stockings do very little for protection, other painted materials do not hold up and do not allow for prosthetic adjustments and/or repairs.
