LP Rotate

LP Rotate


HC000618

The LP Rotate has been specially designed for people with long residual limbs, which have insufficient clearance for the Re-Flex Rotate.

This compact energy-storing foot offers rotational shock absorption designed to reduce shear forces on the residual limb. The Rotate shock module is combined with the LP Vari-Flex foot module.

Impact Levels

Impact LevelExample

Low

Daily activities involving gentle, steady walking with the use of a walking aid.

Example: Moving around at home, modest walking in the community.

Moderate

Daily activities involving average walking with the ability to vary speed or walking pattern.

Example: Going to the shops, confident outdoor walking.

High

Daily activities involving fast walking, jogging and climbing stairs.

Example: Heavy-lifting, manual labor, recreational sports.

LP Rotate™ Features

CARBON-X® Active Heel

CARBON-X® Active Heel

The Carbon-X Active Heel stores the energy during loading response as the amputee transfers his or her body weight onto the prosthetic foot. Energy is gradually released from the heel providing optimal return for forward progression of the limb.

Benefit: Reducing impact to the joints and residual limb thus increases comfort, reduces joint and limb damage.


Full Length Toe Lever

Full Length Toe Lever

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.


Proportional Response

Proportional Response

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.


Rotation

Rotation

Trunk rotation is essential for good gait dynamics. If rotation is limited by loss of joints and the prosthetic interface, gait dynamics and comfort are compromised. Rotational forces are translated to more proximal joints and to the residual limb. Rotary torque absorbing components assist in restoring rotation thus improving joint health, comfort and gait dynamics.

Benefit: Supports normal gait dynamics, reduces risk of joint damage, and improves residual limb comfort within the socket interface.


Split Toe

Split Toe

A split toe feature allows the foot to adjust to uneven surfaces, allowing amputees to walk with stability and comfort on uneven ground.

Benefit: Helps to maintain balance, stability and reduces peak impact during loading.


Vertical Shock Pylon

Vertical Shock Pylon

The vertical shock pylon reduces impact to the residual limb, joints and lower back during daily activities. It also ensures a more energy-efficient gait by minimizing vertical displacement of the center of gravity.

Benefit: Protection of joints, the spine and stump by reduction of the shock loading.
