Balance Foot S Torsion

Balance Foot S Torsion


PNBAFOST

Balance Foot S is a lightweight, waterproof foot specifically designed to meet the needs of low active walkers. For these users, the cushioning heel foam with gradual stiffening and wide sole blade provides enhanced stability perception, moderate push-off, and the perception of a smooth rollover. The torsion shock unit offers valuable shock absorption and helps to restore lost rotational capabilities.

The anatomical foot cover features a steady-grip sole and a sandal clamping toe, offering better barefoot stability on wet or slippery surfaces and the opportunity to wear different types of footwear.

Balance™ Foot S Torsion Features

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.


Multi-Axial Ground Compliance

Multi-Axial Ground Compliance

Multi-axial compliance of the foot provides improved ground contact during ambulation on unevensurfaces.

Benefit: Maintain balance, stability and comfort when walking on uneven surfaces.


Sandal Toe

Sandal Toe

Sandal toe foot designs incorporate a split between the first and second toe.

Benefit: More anatomical look for increased visual appeal and more functional compatibility with sandal shoes.


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.


Waterproof

Waterproof

The use of first-rate material such as carbon fiber, titanium and high-grade aluminum provides permanent protection against harmful ingress of water. Even after submersion in water, the foot’s structural parts maintain their integrity and continue to provide full support, function and durability.

Benefit: No loss of prosthetic function under wet circumstances.
