Vari-Flex Junior provides an exclusive combination of comfort and dynamics. It is specially made for those children who require the additional energy response.
Vari-Flex Junior is lightweight, easy to assemble and has a slender profile which makes it easy to cosmetically cover. It ensures the highest levels of user confidence and security. Promoting a natural gait with less fatigue and strain on the lower back and sound side, it is the ideal foot for any activity.
Daily activities involving gentle, steady walking with the use of a walking aid.
Example: Moving around at home, modest walking in the community.
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.

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.
Sandal toe foot designs incorporate a split between the first and second toe.
Benefit: More anatomical look for increased visual appeal and more functional compatibility with sandal shoes.
