1E2~21E2~51 Foot prosthetics

ProCarve prosthetic foot


The ProCarve is a combination of sport prosthesis components for skiing and snowboarding or other sports with similar motions such as waterskiing or wakeboarding. The sophisticated damping technology in both the knee and foot (combining a pneumatic spring and a hydraulic unit) specifically facilitates dynamic movement. The ProCarve is suitable for recreational as well as professional athletes with a knee disarticulation or an above- or below-knee amputation.
Following rigorous testing in partnership with Tyrolia, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of ski bindings, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Alpine Skiing Technical Committee has approved the use of the Ottobock ProCarve without a ski boot in competition.

Pure Sport

ProCarve provides targeted support for ambitious hobby and weekend athletes in their individual alpine winter sports. It also meets the highest demands of performance athletes on the piste. It has been designed especially for skiing and snow boarding with a lot of carving.

Skiing with friends

Step into the binding and onto the piste. Expansive skiing terrain, an unending view, fresh winter air – is there anything more beautiful than soaking in an alpine panorama and then carving down the mountainside?

Enjoy the moment 

Thanks to the high-performance and robust damping units in the ankle and knee joints, movements are supported in a targeted manner with ProCarve.

Skiier who loves the challenge on the ski run.
Passion for skiing

The flexion in the ProCarve knee joint works against the resistance of the damper in the engaged state. When a break is needed the knee joint can be disengaged so you can sit comfortably – whether in the chairlift or during après-ski.

Individuality

The ProCarve can be used for different sports, including water-skiing and wakeboarding. The flexion and extension damping can be individually adjusted by the technician. 

User Experience

Feel the winter air and rock the piste – just like Cedric Amafroi-Broisat with his ProCarve prosthetic foot

You adopt the downhill position. Your muscles are taut. You feel the wind and the cold in your face. You’re totally focused. You set off, pick up speed. It’s your sport, they’re your moves. Your time is now.
