Talux®


HC000918

The tarsal core and Achilles Strap provide multi-axial function, while the Dual J-Springs enhances forward motion, giving users ideal proportions of balance and agility.

Emulating many of the anatomical features of the human foot, the Talux has been specially designed to provide fluid, natural walking motion in a variety of terrains, for users of low to moderate activity. Talux now comes with a sandal toe for ease of footwear selection.

Quick Align - Instructions for Use

Enjoying the big outdoors often means navigating some pretty uneven surfaces. Even a trip to the shops can have its own obstacles. But help is at hand. Talux is the prosthetic foot designed specifically for fluid, natural walking motion on any kind of ground.

Feel the difference on uneven ground. Talux offers superb stability, as well as high-energy return, enabling the user to walk further and for longer. From the second the heel touches the ground to the moment the toe lifts off, it would be difficult to find another prosthetic foot that simulates a more graceful, effortless movement.

This foot's design reproduces many of the anatomical features of the human foot, which is why walking on it feels so natural. It even has an Achilles strap, which simulates the movement of the Achilles tendon and helps to propel the user forward.

Who it is for:

  • People with lower to moderately active lifestyles.
  • Those who enjoy walking, often on different types of ground.
  • People looking for good energy return and stability.
  • Short to medium length residual limbs*.
  • People who weigh up to 325lbs / 147kg.

*Those with long residual limbs should consider Flex-Foot® AxiaTM as a suitable alternative

Fluid, natural walking motion on any kind of ground.

If you think Talux could be the ideal foot for your walking needs, discuss it as an option with your prosthetist.

Talux® Features

Active Tibial Progression

Active Tibial Progression

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.


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.


Multi-Axial Ground Compliance

Multi-Axial Ground Compliance

Multi-axial compliance of the foot provides improved ground contact during ambulation on unevensurfaces.

Benefit: Maintain balance, stability and comfort when walking on uneven surfaces.


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.
