For 25 years, Flex-Foot® has been the foot of choice for prosthetists and amputees alike and with the new Vari-Flex with EVO, the evolution continues.
The Vari-Flex with EVO provides a unique combination of comfort and dynamics, and is designed to make life easier – for everyone.
For prosthetists, the Vari-Flex with EVO is lightweight, easy to assemble and its slender profile makes it easy to cover cosmetically. And for amputees it ensures the highest levels of confidence and security. Offering natural gait with less fatigue and ultimately less strain on the lower back and sound side, it is the ideal foot for any activity.
Vari-Flex with EVO enables amputees to walk more comfortably, better and for longer.
Ideal for most activity, Vari-Flex with EVO replicates the functions of the human foot beautifully. Its extra smooth roll-over motion contributes to a more natural, symmetrical gait, which means less fatigue and ultimately less strain on the lower back and sound side of the body.
8 out of 9 amputees who trialed the Vari-Flex with EVO said they preferred it to their previous foot. And 9 out of 10reported a significant and positive differencewhen walking barefoot.
"On a scale of 0-5, I'd give it a 6!"
A big bonus for many people using this foot is the ease with which they can now walk barefoot. Most prosthetic feet are aligned for use with shoes, and removing them usually alters gait significantly. However in trials, users commented on improved stability in all types of situations, particularly when walking without shoes.
Made of specially layered carbon fiber for strength and functionality, the Vari-Flex with EVO is a lightweight, slender prosthetic that is easy to cover cosmetically. A durable, responsive foot, it has a split toe for enhanced stability. It is available in sizes 22-30cm and with a choice of beige or brown foot covers. A low profile Vari-Flex with EVO is also available for those with longer residual limbs.
If you think the Vari-Flex with EVO could be right for you, discuss it as an option with your prosthetist.

The EVO (Energy Vector Optimization) feature is generated by controlling how the ground reaction force is transferred to the prosthetic foot. Each step is optimized through the magnitude, placement and direction of forces for maximum efficiency. EVO enables the amputee to develop the most natural gait progression possible which reduces fatigue and puts less pressure on the sound side.
