Creating life's turning points, together.

By delivering world-leading technologies and products, alongside responsive clinical services, across the fields of prosthetics, orthotics and assistive technology, Steeper’s mission is to create turning points that empower patients and fundamentally enhance people’s lives.

Plié 3 - Stronger. Smarter. Submersible.

Stronger construction makes the new Plié 3 Microprocessor Controlled (MPC) Knee by Freedom Innovations both submersible and more rugged than ever. Yet, it’s still the fastest MPC knee, responding 10 to 20 times more rapidly than other MPC knees.

With the most responsive stumble and fall protection, users can instinctively move at their own pace in any direction…even if it’s taking small short steps or pivoting in confined spaces. With a more streamlined, intuitive set up, the Plié 3 MPC Knee makes it even easier for prosthetists to help patients expand their freedom.

The Clinical Commissioning Policy regulates the NHS provision of prosthetic knee components and the decision to approve funding via the NHS for MPKs is aimed to help improve the quality of limb loss rehabilitation for above knee amputees. MPKs will now be funded through Specialised Commissioning by NHS England and will soon be available through Rehabilitation Service Centres to amputees who meet the criteria set out in the policy. With hundreds of amputees living in England with above knee limb loss and hip disarticulation the decision has been welcomed from within the industry.
