In 2014, Rob's life changed after a motorcycle accident. The road to recovery was long and winding. Now, thanks to the Empower foot, Rob is back to his everyday routine without the need of a cane.
What is the Empower, and who can benefit from it?
Restore your power
The Empower microprocessor foot is equipped with an active ankle joint, making it the only prosthesis with powered propulsion. This unique feature gives the foot an active drive, which provides high-energy support for every step. This allows both the foot and your entire body to be propelled forward. At the same time, sensors in the foot monitor your steps and foot position, adjusting resistance to accommodate for every situation.
Empower is intended for everyday use by active individuals and may be suitable for those with transtibial, transfemoral, knee disarticulation, and bilateral amputations.
