What does it take for an amputee to give a product an excellent rating on the wellbeing scale?
It takes a product that improves your confidence and quality of life.
For foot amputees it takes the Proprio Foot.
The Proprio Foot from Össur is rapidly changing the world of prosthetic feet. It offers an unprecedented level of mobility and stability. With its powered ankle motion, intelligent terrain adaptation and natural function, it is the most lifelike prosthetic foot available.
Amputees often find themselves doing compensatory movements to maintain stability, especially on stairs and uneven surfaces. The Proprio Foot recognises the subtlest changes in movement and terrain and the sensor technology enables an immediate and appropriate response. Active ankle motion is generated causing natural movements such as the toe lifting as the leg swings forward and the adjustment of ankle angle on varying terrain and in relaxed mode.
The Proprio Foot has many benefits including natural movement, reduced risk of stumbles and falls, prolonged mobility and allowance of exercise; it also provides comfort on ramps, slopes and stairs.
When putting on different shoes, walking, running or simply moving comes naturally to able-bodied people. But with foot amputees even the slightest movement can be a challenge. Stumbling or falling can injure or damage self-esteem.
Users of the Proprio Foot endorse this product worldwide as they are enjoying a better quality of life with greater mobility. They no longer dread getting out of a chair or in and out of vehicles. Foot amputees use this product with confidence and ease in the house, the office and in public.
