This super smart foot delivers a level of functionality that is as close as you can get today to its human counterpart. Capable of independent thought, it responds beautifully in any situation.
The redesigned PROPRIO FOOT improves walking ability for amputees as no other solution can. From taking a simple stroll to navigating a flight of stairs, this groundbreaking 'smart foot' helps below knee amputees walk with unmatched comfort and confidence.
The PROPRIO FOOT prosthesis is the closest thing yet to the human foot. Utilizing intelligent ankle flexion and energy-efficient Flex-Foot dynamics, this artificial foot quickly learns how a person walks, and responds to ground features accordingly. Such sensing ability reduces the need to watch the ground, improving the quality of life and confidence of the user.
Guiding the highly adaptive PROPRIO FOOT are the instincts and intellect to navigate a variety of surfaces with unsurpassed precision and stability. The ankle angle automatically adjusts for smoother walking down slopes and stairs. As well, the toe rises to reduce the risk of trips and falls, and adjusts its angle to accommodate inclines. This constant adaptation allows the user to feel more stable and natural when walking.
Thanks to the stability provided by the anatomically correct PROPRIO FOOT prosthetic, wearers regain a more natural, balanced gait. This more symmetrical movement reduces the need to "hip hike" when walking or "roll" over the edge of a step while descending stairs. The resultant lifelike gait helps to reduce stress on the back, hips, and knees, an important factor in people's ability to walk longer, farther, and more comfortably.
The PROPRIO FOOT below knee prosthesis even makes the proper ankle adjustments to ease the process of sitting and standing. This unique feature allows for a more balanced loading of one's body weight on both limbs when getting in and out of a chair, reducing strain on the back and shoulders.
Those with a prosthetic foot now have a proven way to walk with greater comfort and confidence than ever before. The PROPRIO FOOT – the world's first truly intelligent foot, is a step ahead of everything else.
