New Product! Otto Bock Triton Harmony® (Vacuum) Prosthetic Foot

We have successfully fit several BK patients at POA with this new technology, including Jean Law, a bi-lateral amputee. The main features of the foot are the lightweight integrated vacuum pump and shock absorbing/rotation functionality. Says, Jean, “It feels very light, comfortable and natural; not stiff at the ankle like other prosthetic feet….and I don’t have to use a manual pump!”

These are very exciting times in the prosthetic industry; cutting edge technology has led to the development of several new and revolutionary products! If you would like to see if the Triton Harmony® foot is right for you, or if you are interested in trying some of the other new products and techniques we are now using in our practice, give us a call and make an appointment so we can fill you in!

The BiOM Powerfoot by iWalk; promising new techology!

SGM Chris Self recently put the new BiOM Powerfoot by iWalk to the test. It’s the world’s first bionic lower leg system to replace the action of the foot, achilles tendon and calf muscle. The BiOM generates power during plantar flexion, propelling the prosthesis forward. This allows the amputee to use less energy when walking. Very exciting and promising technology!
