Customize the performance of Flex-Foot Balance

The D/P Flexion ankle module enables CPO's to customize performance for each amputee to help further boost their confidence.

By applying independent stiffness adjustments of dorsiflexion and plantar flexion, the 9 degrees offered by the D/P Flexion module help improve stability on ramps and when transitioning from sitting to standing.

Add elevated vacuum to the mix

Our zero-build-height Unity pump module can also be added to this unique offering for low active users, allowing them the security and freedom of vacuum suspension without the restrictions of a sleeve.

Reducing trips and falls

Designed to reduce the risk of trips and falls - one of the main concerns of low active amputees - the D/P Flexion ankle module is a truly valuable addition for low active amputees.

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.
