A custom-built, hybrid carbon fibre foot designed to function as both an everyday and sports foot.
For kids that require the flexibility of an everyday walking foot and a running foot in a single prosthesis, Cheetah Xplore Junior is the answer. Cheetah Xplore couples the proven performance of our Cheetah sprinting foot with a heel for everyday walking/standing.
Daily activities involving average walking with the ability to vary speed or walking pattern.
Example: Going to the shops, confident outdoor walking.
Daily activities involving fast walking, jogging and climbing stairs.
Example: Heavy-lifting, manual labor, recreational sports.
Activities involving running, track and field, sprinting, and long-distance running.
Example: Track and field sports.

Vertical forces generated at heel contact are stored and translated into a linear motion described as Active Tibial Progression. This action reduces the need to actively push the body forward using the contralateral foot and also equalizes stride length.
Benefit: More natural gait and reduced walking effort.
The full length keel/toe lever matches the length of the sound foot, providing improved support to the prosthetic limb during late stance. It ensures that users spend equal time on the prosthetic foot and natural limb, thus providing improved walking dynamics and reduced impact to the sound limb.
Benefit: Improved walking symmetry and reduced impact to the sound limb.
The layering of carbon fiber, optimized through extensive computer analysis and mechanical testing, ensures that the deflection of the carbon fiber heel and forefoot components are proportional to the user’s weight and impact level.
Benefit: Customized construction optimizes walking efficiency thus reducing fatigue for the user.
The use of first-rate material such as carbon fiber, titanium and high-grade aluminum provides permanent protection against harmful ingress of water. Even after submersion in water, the foot’s structural parts maintain their integrity and continue to provide full support, function and durability.
Benefit: No loss of prosthetic function under wet circumstances.
