First day walking on my new prosthesis with Genium knee and Endolite Blade foot. I felt like I was walking on air, and with energy I haven’t felt in years. My kids are having a hard time keeping up with me! I want to jump and run!!! Maybe I will! 😉 Stay tuned for the next update! First day on new prosthesis

We fit Dan Gade, a hip-disarticulate amputee with the Otto Bock Genium Bionic Knee System this past week. He didn’t think it would live up to it’s hype, but decided to try it anyway. He’s glad he did. Before he left our office to return to his position at West Point Academy, he played a round of golf with Stan. Hip Disarticulate Playing Golf using Genium bionic knee
POA patient Jeff Moore was recently fit with the X2 bionic knee (military version of the Genium). He says it definitely lives up to the hype! X2/Genium Video
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!
