This compact energy-storing foot offers rotational shock absorption designed to reduce shear forces on the residual limb. The torsion module is combined with the Pro-Flex LP foot module, delivering a level of ankle power, energy return, and overall dynamics, which have often eluded people with longer residual limbs. Pro-Flex LP Torsion has been specially designed to deliver these benefits, in addition to providing exceptionally smooth rollover. The torsion-shock unit compensates for physiological rotation and vertical shock absorption of lost joints, delivering more comfort for the end user, and less stress on the residual limb.
The Pro-Flex LP Torsion offers a high degree of ankle motion; a significant improvement in relation to conventional low-profile carbon fiber feet. It incorporates a effective full-length toe, and new ‘reverse tapered’ technology, allowing for greater dorsi-flexion.
Less load and more dynamics means that amputees with a longer limb can enjoy greater comfort in a wide range of activities. The welldesigned and lightweight anatomical foot cover features a steadygrip sole for barefoot stability on wet or slick surfaces, and a sandalclamping toe for a range of footwear including flip flops.
Össur recommends using the Pro-Flex LP Torsion together with the Unity sleeveless vacuum suspension system. This adds minimal weight, no extra build height, and does not interfere with the Pro-Flex LP Torsion dynamics. Unity is designed to provide secure suspension in combination with Iceross Seal-In® technology, while stabilizing volume fluctuations and maintaining comfortable socket fit throughout the day.
