PROPRIO FOOT is an adaptive prosthetic device for low to moderately active below-knee amputees that mimics natural foot motion. Motor-powered ankle motion increases ground clearance and reduces the risk of tripping and falling. This allows users to traverse different kinds of terrain in a natural and secure way.
Daily activities involving gentle, steady walking with the use of a walking aid.
Example: Moving around at home, modest walking in the community.
Daily activities involving average walking with the ability to vary speed or walking pattern.
Example: Going to the shops, confident outdoor walking.

Vertical forces generated at heel contact are stored and translated into a linear motion described as Active Tibial Progression. This action reduces the need to actively push the body forward using the contralateral foot and also equalizes stride length.
Benefit: More natural gait and reduced walking effort.
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.
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.Benefits:
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.
Heel height can be adjusted for various types of shoes to ensure correct alignment. Users can easily change shoes to fit most occasions as the heel height can be adjusted within the given range.
Benefits: Adjustable heel height minimizes misalignment of the prosthesis thus reducing walking fatigue and discomfort experienced with poor alignment.
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.
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.
