CARBON DYNAMIC FEET
Provides an exclusive combination of comfort and dynamics. The Vari-Flex with EVO is light-weight, easy to assemble and has a slender profile which makes it easy to cosmetically cover. For users it ensures the highest levels of confidence and security. It is the ideal foot for any activity. The new EVO feature enables users to experience natural gait progression by utilising the foot plate to it’s fullest potential. A more natural gait reduces fatigue and puts less strain on the lower back and sound side.
is an extraordinary solution for a prosthetic foot – a combination of creative design and innovative, lightweight construction. Connected double-spring elements absorb shock at heel strike and allow for smooth rollover and excellent energy return. Secure, controlled response provides the user with additional confidence.
The foot conforms to different walking speeds and uneven ground without compromising comfort, all the while, reducing load on the sound side.
- Base SpringThe split base spring made of high-performance polyester has a separate big toe and connects the forefoot and the heel spring to form a complete system
- AdapterPyramid adapter made of lightweight aluminium
- Carbon Attachment SpringThe attachment spring made of carbon fibre material gives the foot the required stability
- Carbon Forefoot SpringThe split forefoot spring allows the foot to adapt to uneven surfaces. It offers energy return, stability and control at rollover and toe-off
- Carbon Heel SpringThe heel spring dampens the impact at heel strike and stores the energy for a smooth rollover
- Replaceable Heel WedgeThe optional heel wedges provide a simple method for adapting the Triton to the individual needs of the patient
From a comfortable heel strike with noticeable plantar flexion through the progressive ankle moment up to the optimised a-p and m-l movement: the natural gait is the model for the 1D35 Dynamic Motion.
Thanks to the outstanding characteristics of the plastic spring in combination with the functional foam and the integrated 3D spacer fabric, the Dynamic Motion has a high energy return and allows for a dynamic transition from the stance to the swing phase. The contralateral side is effectively relieved. The result is a harmonious and physiological rollover.
Pro-Flex XC has been developed to comfortably accommodate the relatively active user, who enjoys hiking and jogging, as well as levelground walking. Comes with an aesthetically pleasing, anatomical footcover and integrated male pyramid.
Unity for Pro-Flex XC is available either pre-fit with a new foot or as a retrofit option. Used in combination with Iceross® Seal-In® liners, Unity provides advanced vacuum suspension for the socket during ambulation, without the constraints of an external sleeve. It adds minimal weight to the existing prosthesis and its simple mechanical design means there are no batteries to worry about. Reliable, effective and easy to use, it is designed to improve balance and prevent skin problems.
Pro-Flex XC Torsion
Pro-Flex XC has been developed to comfortably support the active user who enjoys hiking and jogging, as well as level-ground walking. Pro-Flex XC Torsion combines the Pro-Flex XC features of energy return and smooth roll-over, with valuable shock absorption and rotational capabilities.
The sole blade offers a effective full-length toe, and a wider foot blade than traditional feet.
The foot is ideal for active users who want to use a single, lightweight foot for their normal daily life, as well as a range of higher impact activities.
Less load and more dynamics means that amputees can enjoy greater comfort in a wide range of activities. The well-designed and lightweight anatomical foot cover features a steady-grip sole for barefoot stability on wet or slick surfaces, and a sandal-clamping toe for a range of footwear including flip flops.
Össur recommends using Pro-Flex XC Torsion together with the Unity sleeveless vacuum suspension system. This adds minimal weight, no extra build height, and does not interfere with the Pro-Flex XC Torsion dynamics. Unity is designed to provide secure suspension in combination with Iceross Seal-In® technology, while stabilizing volume fluctuations and maintaining comfortable socket fit throughout the day.
When deciding on a possible prosthetic foot many things need to be considered, such as age, activity level, daily activities, leisure activities and so on. This will be the component that transfers energy from the prosthesis to the ground and it needs to be able to keep up with the patient’s needs. It is important to choose the correct foot to prevent the risk of the prosthesis from limiting the patient. Most prosthetic feet can be used for a 30-day trial period to ensure that the patient is satisfied with the component, which also opens the door for a patient to try more than one foot in order to have a frame of reference to compare them to.
