Unreferenced feet

Some feet are not yet listed in France and therefore are not reimbursed by social security.

The ELATION foot

The Ossur Flexfoot range (unclassified): This foot is dynamic thanks to it’s carbon structure. It has an interesting feature: the patient can adjust himself to the tilt of the foot to adapt to shoes with heel heights which can vary from 0 to 5 cm.

There are two levels for moderate activity and normal.

Its weight is not felt given the energy returned.

 

The Proprio foot

This foot is a combination of « flex walk » and a bionic ankle.
The interest in the artificial intelligence of the ankle: it handles an automatic flexion / extension in the different phases of gait.

So, it naturally accompanies the walk:

  • During the swing phase, the tip of the foot rises to help the passage of the foot.
  • Going up a slope, the tip of the foot lifts to facilitate progress
  • Down inclined planes, the tip of the foot drops at the heel strike to hold the patient in his descent
  • Climbing stairs, the toe rises to avoid tripping against the step during swing phase, and to assist in the propulsion phase of stance.
  • Descending stairs, the movement of dorsiflexion in the stance phase allows the patient to place his foot in mid-step

The ankle also provides comfort in sitting position:

  • While seated with a semi-stretched leg, the foot goes into equinus (toe down), which has the effect of lowering the thigh and improving rest.
  • During the rectification of this sitting position, a dorsiflexion of the ankle facilitates getting up;

It is currently designed only for those equipped with a trans-tibial prosthesis.

Specifications:

  • Adjustability heel height of 0-50 mm (or 0 to 20 °)
  • Set weight: 1.250 kg
  • Battery life: 36 hours in constant use (charge 3 or 4 hours)
  • Patient's weight range: 45 to 116 kilos
  • Foot Sizes: 25 to 30 cm (size 39 to 44)
  • Types of blades: 1-7
  • Size in socket: 18 cm

The REFLEX

It incorporates the basic principle of the flex-foot, vertical shock absorption is absorbed by a lateral carbon blade  that provides great comfort in the dynamic phases.
Despite its shortened version, it’s size limits it’s use.
