Carbon feet

Many prosthesis wearers want their prosthetic foot to support the most natural possible gait pattern. The C-Walk carbon foot not only makes a symmetrical gait possible but also reduces strain on both sides of the body – the one with the prosthesis as well as the sound side. The basic principle of this unique design is based on coupling a C-shaped carbon fibre spring with the foot’s base spring using a control ring. The C-Walk releases exactly as much of the stored energy in each phase of the gait cycle as you actually need to make the rollover of the foot as smooth and physiological as possible. This helps you walk in a comfortable, dynamic manner.

Base spring

The carbon base spring stores energy during the rollover and provides extended support. It therefore ensures a smooth transition from the prosthesis side to the sound leg.

C-spring

The C-spring provides a comfortable, cushioned heel strike.

Heel element

The heel element ensures elastic damping and rapid ground contact.

Control ring

Due to the control ring, the individual elements interact effectively to enable a smooth
and efficient movement pattern.

Carbon feet

Do you only have a limited build height available for the installation of your prosthetic foot? Thanks to the Taleo Low Profile, you too can benefit from the high energy return and flexibility of the Taleo prosthetic feet. The unique pyramid design also allows more controlled forward movement during rollover than usual for low profile feet. The prosthetic foot is resistant to fresh, salt and chlorinated water. Water runoff channels on the adapter and openings in the sole of the footshell prevent water from collecting in your prosthesis.
