It’s more than a prosthetic foot. It’s your foundation.

The Taleo Side Flex (1C58) was designed for active users who navigate varied indoor and outdoor environments and place a high value on secure, effortless walking as well as socket comfort.

Thanks to innovative technology, it offers more freedom of movement in everyday life and ensures secure, full-surface ground contact with its Terrain Adaption Unit – even on uneven surfaces and slopes. The prosthetic foot’s Terrain Adaptation Unit (TAU) reduces the lateral load on your knee or in the socket, which can often cause discomfort. It also minimises compensating movements so you can decide where you go.

Innovative ankle unit for lateral flexibility

The effortless side-to-side flexibility is achieved by a titanium torsion bar. This technology permits a total 20° range of motion, cushions the adaptation and brings the unit back to its original position after every step.

Benefits at a glance

Taleo Side Flex - Ready for everyday life

Secure full-surface ground contact

The Terrain Adaption Unit of Taleo Side Flex ensures secure, full-surface ground contact – even when walking or standing on uneven surfaces and lateral slopes, allowing you to fully concentrate on your surroundings.

Lateral Flexibility

New Lateral Flexibility

Conventional prosthetic feet only adapt to lateral slopes to a small extent at heel strike, these feet then adapt to a greater extent as the load on the forefoot increases, with maximum adaptation occurring at the end of the stance phase. The Taleo Side Flex adapts to lateral slopes and uneven ground to a high degree right after heel strike having a positive impact on your comfort and safety.
