Functional Options that Absorb Torsion
For lower limb prosthetic patients who need the benefit of enhanced shock absorption and torsion, Ottobock offers two great options in its expansive foot portfolio – Triton Vertical Shock and Taleo Vertical Shock. Both options are equipped with a functional ring unit that absorbs torsion (+/- 10˚), allowing them to keep the prosthetic foot planted for a more extended period while stepping forward with the sound limb. The benefit of torsion, combined with up to 15mm of shock absorption provided by the functional ring unit, gives the user outstanding socket comfort and protects the limb from shear forces.
