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!
