Where conventional mechanical prosthetic feet have always represented a compromise between flexibility and stability, electronically controlled ankle joints have until now enabled primarily slight, gradual adjustments to the user’s current gait behavior.
But the new Meridium is completely different, featuring an impressive range of advantages that offer the user a significantly more precise adjustment to the current situation. As a result, the user feels extremely safe and enjoys a more natural pattern of movement.
Incorporating intelligent, real-time control, the 4-axis design adjusts itself immediately to the user’s walking speed and ground conditions, whether on slopes, stairs or varying terrain.
Triton Smart Ankle
The Triton smart ankle lives up to its name, combining the well-engineered Triton foot with the power of state-of-the-art microprocessor and sensor technology.
With 34 degrees range of motion, the Triton smart ankle opens up possibilities for your patients by actively responding to changes in terrain and speed to make walking easier, especially on ramps, slopes, and stairs. Make the ankle even smarter by using the app (free in the Apple or Google Play stores) to fine-tune the foot. You can even set parameters for your patient to accommodate their activities of daily living. And the long-lasting battery life of up to 96 hours gives your patients the freedom to roam without worrying about running out of power.
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.
