C-Walk prosthetic foot 1C40Ottobock
Natural gait to the prosthetic foot carbon fiber
Many users want a prosthetic foot prosthesis that favors walking pattern as natural as possible, so that others do not notice a disability instantly. Ottobock based on this desire a development goal more than a decade. The result: a prosthetic foot carbon fiber called C-Walk which not only makes it possible to walk with a symmetrical pattern of motion, but also reduces the load on both sides of the body (the side with the prosthesis and the healthy side). The basic principle of this unique design is based on connecting a carbon fiber spring C-shaped spring with the base of the foot by a control ring.
In each phase of the gait cycle, C-Walk returns the amount of energy you actually need to flex the foot of the most physiological and balanced as possible. Therefore, you can always walk comfortably and dynamically.
