Pro-Flex® LP

Pro-Flex® LP


HC040199

A good level of ankle power, energy return and overall dynamics has often eluded people with longer residual limbs. Pro-Flex LP has been specially designed to counter those issues and to provide exceptionally smooth rollover.

Pro-Flex LP offers a high degree of ankle motion and a significant improvement on conventional low profile carbon fiber feet. It also incorporates a full-effective toe length and new ‘reverse tapered’ technology, allowing for greater dorsi-flexion.

Less load and more dynamics means that amputees with a longer limb can enjoy greater comfort for a wide range of activities. The well-designed and lightweight anatomical foot cover features a steady-grip sole for barefoot stability on wet or slick surfaces and a sandal-clamping toe for a range of footwear including flipflops.

Össur recommends using Pro-Flex LP in conjunction with the sleeveless vacuum suspension system Unity, which adds minimal weight and no extra build height, and does not interfere with Pro-Flex LP dynamics. Unity is designed to provide secure suspension in combination with Iceross Seal-In ® technology, while stabilizing volume fluctuations and maintaining comfortable socket fit throughout the day.

Impact Levels

Impact LevelExample

Low

Daily activities involving gentle, steady walking with the use of a walking aid.

Example: Moving around at home, modest walking in the community.

Moderate

Daily activities involving average walking with the ability to vary speed or walking pattern.

Example: Going to the shops, confident outdoor walking.

High

Daily activities involving fast walking, jogging and climbing stairs.

Example: Heavy-lifting, manual labor, recreational sports.

Pro-Flex® LP Features

CARBON-X® Active Heel

CARBON-X® Active Heel

The Carbon-X Active Heel stores the energy during loading response as the amputee transfers his or her body weight onto the prosthetic foot. Energy is gradually released from the heel providing optimal return for forward progression of the limb.

Benefit: Reducing impact to the joints and residual limb thus increases comfort, reduces joint and limb damage.


Full Length Toe Lever

Full Length Toe Lever

The full length keel/toe lever matches the length of the sound foot, providing improved support to the prosthetic limb during late stance. It ensures that users spend equal time on the prosthetic foot and natural limb, thus providing improved walking dynamics and reduced impact to the sound limb.

Benefit: Improved walking symmetry and reduced impact to the sound limb.


Proportional Response

Proportional Response

The layering of carbon fiber, optimized through extensive computer analysis and mechanical testing, ensures that the deflection of the carbon fiber heel and forefoot components are proportional to the user’s weight and impact level.

Benefit: Customized construction optimizes walking efficiency thus reducing fatigue for the user.


Sandal Toe

Sandal Toe

Sandal toe foot designs incorporate a split between the first and second toe.

Benefit: More anatomical look for increased visual appeal and more functional compatibility with sandal shoes.


Split Toe

Split Toe

A split toe feature allows the foot to adjust to uneven surfaces, allowing amputees to walk with stability and comfort on uneven ground.

Benefit: Helps to maintain balance, stability and reduces peak impact during loading.


Unity® - Sleeveless Vacuum Suspension

Unity offers the security and freedom of vacuum suspension, but without the sensation and restrictions of a sleeve. This advanced system from Össur effectively addresses volume fluctuation and is totally compatible with Flex-Foot technology.

Key advantages

  • No sleeve required: Greater mobility and user acceptance
  • 15-22 in Hg Vacuum: Effective volume stabilization
  • Simple design: Quick and easy to achieve/release vacuum
  • Independent pump: Foot function uncompromised
  • Light weight: Complete system weighs only 130g

Unity for all

With the Unity Vacuum System by Össur, there is finally an elevated vacuum system for all users. Whether an above-knee or below-knee, low active or high active, mechanical or microprocessor solution is required, the Unity Vacuum System offers the flexibility to combine a variety of Össur feet and knees to achieve the optimal combination of equipment for each unique user.

Unity is only recommended with sleeveless Seal-In technology
