What Is A Microprocessor Ankle?
Microprocessor feet and ankles use hydraulics and specialized sensors to monitor your movement and make necessary adjustments to the ankle’s angle and stiffness in real-time. These powered ankles can offer flexible ankle movement, normalized gait, and center your body’s alignment.
Microprocessor ankles are the closest thing we’ve seen to their biological counterparts. This more comfortable, technologically advanced method can improve your mobility in many ways.
- Low To Moderate Impact
- Increased Ground Contact
- Symmetrical Gait
- Improved Stability
- Comfortable Shock Absorption
- Imitates Life-like Movement
