Re-Flex Rotate with EVO is a robust, high performance foot allowing users to enjoy daily living, work and leisure with the comfort and confidence to reach their full potential.

Meeting challenging requirements of the active user by combining optimal shock absorption, dynamic energy return and comfort, the Re-Flex Rotate is one of a kind. Featuring a sleek profile and maintenance free design it is the first choice for active users requiring high performance, comfortable everyday foot.

Description

The torsion cell reduces both rotary forces on the knee joint and shear forces on the residual limb. An integrated torsion cell allows rotational yield designed to protect the residual limb and knee joint. Shock absorption via titanium coil spring reduces impact subjected to the body while enhancing both control and comfort during walking and other activities.

The incorporation of EVO enables users to experience natural gait progression by utilizing the foot plate to its fullest potential. A more natural gait reduces fatigue and puts less strain on the lower back and sound side.

Features

  • Active Tribal Progression - Vertical forces generated at heel contact are stored and translated into a linear motion described as Active Tibial Progression. This action reduces the need to actively push the body forward using the contralateral foot and also equalizes stride length.

  • CARBON-X Active Heel - The Carbon-X Active Heel stores the energy during loading response as the amputee transfers his or her body weight onto the prosthetic foot. Energy is gradually released from the heel providing optimal return for forward progression of the limb.

  • EVO - The EVO (Energy Vector Optimization) feature is generated by controlling how the ground reaction force is transferred to the prosthetic foot. Each step is optimized through the magnitude, placement and direction of forces for maximum efficiency. EVO enables the amputee to develop the most natural gait progression possible which reduces fatigue and puts less pressure on the sound side.

  • Full Length Toe Lever - The full length keel/toe lever matches the length of the sound foot, providing improved support to the prosthetic limb during late stance. It ensures that users spend equal time on the prosthetic foot and natural limb, thus providing improved walking dynamics and reduced impact to the sound limb.

  • Proportional Response - The layering of carbon fiber, optimized through extensive computer analysis and mechanical testing, ensures that the deflection of the carbon fiber heel and forefoot components are proportional to the user’s weight and impact level

  • Rotation - Trunk rotation is essential for good gait dynamics. If rotation is limited by loss of joints and the prosthetic interface, gait dynamics and comfort are compromised. Rotational forces are translated to more proximal joints and to the residual limb. Rotary torque absorbing components assist in restoring rotation thus improving joint health, comfort and gait dynamics.

  • Split Toe - A split toe feature allows the foot to adjust to uneven surfaces, allowing amputees to walk with stability and comfort on uneven ground.

  • Vertical Shock Pylon - The vertical shock pylon reduces impact to the residual limb, joints and lower back during daily activities. It also ensures a more energy-efficient gait by minimizing vertical displacement of the center of gravity.
