EchelonVT

Suitable for outdoor use
Activity Level (2) 3 (4)

EchelonVT combines the advanced hydraulic technology of Echelon with an additional rotation and vertical shock absorption element, to reduce the shear forces at the socket interface. This reduces the rate of loading at the socket interface and allows the socket to rotate with the residual limb, rather than against it. This means the user is able to move and adapt more freely, making EchelonVT ideal for taking part in activities such as golf and hiking.

Key Features

  • Hydraulic control of dorsi-flexion and plantar-flexion
  • Dorsi-flexed toe for swing phase
  • Rotation and vertical shock absorption
  • Tripod action for conformance and vertical compliance
  • Smooth hydraulic and spring action
  • Slimline foot design
  • Responsive e-carbon foot springs
  • Sandal Toe Foot Shell

Scientifically Proven

Blatchford Biomimetic Hydraulic Technology mimics the dynamic and adaptive qualities of muscle actuation to encourage more natural gait. Multiple independent scientific studies, comparing Blatchford hydraulic ankle-feet to non-hydraulic feet, have shown:

  • Greater comfort, reduced socket pressures
  • Improved safety, reduced risk of trips and falls
  • Smoother, easier and more natural gait
  • More evenly balanced inter-limb loading
  • Greater satisfaction
