Össur launches new Pro-Flex® LP Align, a dynamic heel-height adjustable prosthesis


Reykjavik, Iceland, Oct. 01 2018 - Global prosthetics innovator Össur is introducing Pro-Flex® LP Align, the latest offering in its growing line of proprietary Dynamic Solutions for transtibial and transfemoral amputees engaging in low to moderate impact activities.

Featuring 2 ¾-inches of heel height adjustability and a sandal toe, Pro-Flex LP Align enables users to maintain proper alignment across a variety of everyday footwear, including sneakers, sandals, dress shoes and heels. Yet, Pro-Flex LP Align retains the dynamics of Össur’s unique Pro-Flex 3-blade design, which helps generate exceptional toe-off energy and a fluid, natural progression from heel strike to toe-off. Pro-Flex LP Align also features a proprietary footblade with a full-length toe lever that matches the length of the sound side foot, encouraging gait symmetry.


“At Össur, we believe amputees should be able to enjoy a wide range of footwear, which is why we are so pleased to introduce Pro-Flex LP Align. This technology allows users to choose the footwear that best suits their daily activities, without compromising on alignment or dynamics,” said Jon Sigurdsson, president and CEO of Össur.

Pro-Flex LP Align also includes a weatherproof, lightweight anatomical foot cover with a grippy sole to provide barefoot-like stability on wet or slick surfaces, plus a split toe design for adaptability to uneven terrain.
