These foot/ankle components have small computer-controlled sensors that process information from both the individual’s limb and the surrounding environment to adjust to various needs. The microprocessors in these systems then take the input signals and make decisions as to how to position the ankle, how to set the damping resistance in the ankle, and how to drive an ankle motor during stance phase.
The new Meridium prosthetic foot offers you a high level of security along with increased adaptability and a more natural motion sequence. The unique 4-axis design with hydraulic real-time control therefore adjusts itself immediately to the user’s walking speed and ground conditions, whether on slopes, stairs or varying terrain. When sitting, the complete foot lowers itself to the floor, which provides relief for the residual limb. Because of its automatic heel height adjustment, the Meridium is suitable for various types of shoes. The times when frequent shoe changes gave you a headache are a thing of the past. With the Meridium, you can quickly and easily adapt the heel height to your shoes, whatever the occasion.
