Amputee fitted with Genium bionic limb. Allows to walk backwards, climb ladder, cycle, move freely.

The combination of motion and speed sensors and advanced computing mean that the Genium, made by German firm Otto Bock Healthcare, can detect small changes in movement and direction.

This makes it better than other models at changing the rigidity of the knee, providing better balance and stability.

Cycling, skiing, golf and table tennis are all possible.
