Fillauer’s Raize Foot is a lightweight, low-profile microprocessor foot/ankle. Its microprocessor actively manages flexion resistance for a smoother rollover during the Stance Phase of the gait cycle. It also allows users to adjust heel height to accommodate different shoes.
Partial hand amputations account for nearly 2/3 of all upper limb amputations. Bionic partial hand prostheses are ideal for these situations, but they’re also very expensive. Hi-tech body-powered and ratcheting mechanical prostheses, by comparison, are much more affordable.
Blatchford’s Elan Foot is another worthy competitor in the microprocessor foot/ankle market. Its ability to automatically adjust both dorsiflexion and plantarflexion resistance on each step produces a smooth gait on many different types of terrain, including ramps, slopes, and stairs.
Freedom Innovation’s Kinnex is one of the most advanced microprocessor ankle/foot devices on the market. With a 30-degree range of motion, 3 sensors, and a sophisticated microprocessor, Kinnex automatically adjusts to changing terrain on each step.
