Who is an appropriate candidate for a C-Leg?

The benefits of the C-Leg microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee is that it provides stumble protection and  automatically adjusts to  variable cadences, walking surfaces, and activities. It also allows descending stairs step over step.  Therefore  any above the knee amputee who is at risk for falling due to the prosthetic knee buckling, or who engages in multiple walking activities would benefit from the C Leg.
