More Dynamics With New Additions To The Pro-Flex Family: Pro-Flex LP Torsion and Pro-Flex XC Torsion

Pro flex Family South Africa

Last year, we launched Pro-Flex®, a mechanical foot that combines a 93% increase in peak ankle power with an 82% increase in range of ankle motion to reduce sound-side loads by 11% compared to a conventional energy storing and return foot. Leveraging the original design, we created two additional prosthetic feet to suit the needs of a wider population: Pro-Flex LP and Pro-Flex XC.

Meet The New Pro-Flex XC Torsion and Pro-Flex LP Torsion

Now, we are pleased to announce that the Pro-Flex family is growing even more! Our latest additions are: Pro-Flex XC Torsion and Pro-Flex LP Torsion. Prosthetic feet with torsion help prevent movement between the socket and residual limb, reducing shear stress on the residual limb. Additionally, a strong coupling between limb and socket gives the user more control over their prosthesis, which improves comfort and residual limb health (Heitzmann & Pieschel, 2016).

Unique Anatomical Design Enhances Physically Correct Gait

This innovative design helps generate exceptional toe-off energy and a fluid, natural progression from heel strike to toe-off.

The new torsion models couple the mechanical power of Össur’s Pro-Flex design with shock absorption and rotational capabilities to facilitate a smooth gait and reduce shear forces on residual limbs, thereby helping to protect the user’s sound side, so they may pursue a life without limitations.
