How Much Does a Bionic Leg Cost?
The simple answer is $15,000 to $100,00 US plus. However, with the exception of Blatchford’s Linx, there is no such thing as a bionic leg. Most lower-limb bionics are either for the knee or the foot/ankle.
For this reason, we have broken out the prices for each of these categories below.
Note that these are estimated total cash prices to end-users including the socket and all prosthetist fees, etc., assuming no insurance coverage, for a typical solution in the U.S. We realize that few people buy bionic devices this way but we’re trying to provide a total price from the consumer perspective.
|Bionic Foot||Price Category (USD)|
|Ottobock Empower Ankle||$40,000 to $50,000|
|Freedom Kinnex||$20,000 to $25,000|
|Blatchford Elan Foot||$15,000 to $20,000|
|Blatchford Elan IC||Unknown**|
|Ossur Proprio Foot||$20,000 to $25,000|

** The Elan IC is likely slightly more expensive than the Elan Foot…we just don’t have confirmation yet.
