The Proprio Foot is a bionic prosthetic foot designed for use by individuals with lower extremity amputation. This intelligent foot module for transtibial amputees provides a more balanced and symmetric gait as it responds to changing terrain, stairs, and slopes with automatic ankle flexion. Accelerometer technology tracks the path of the ankle through space, timing gait characteristics and events, including heel strike and toe off. For each stride, the device constructs its path by continuously analyzing horizontal and vertical movement, tracing the foot as it moves through
space. This trace varies according to the terrain so gait pattern recognition algorithms in the foot can detect and identify when a user is walking on flat or sloped surfaces and up or down stairs, as well as when stationary or in a relaxed position (seated). The foot is for low and moderate impact use by individuals who weigh from 45 to 116 kilograms. Seven categories are available (Category 1 through Category 7) for individuals based on their weight and whether the foot will receive low or moderate impact use. DIMENSIONS: 25 to 30 centimeters long. WEIGHT: 1,240 grams (size 27, Category 5).
