1A1-2 - Foot prosthetics

Empower

Restore your power.

The Empower prosthetic foot was specially designed for active users who navigate varied indoor and outdoor environments and place a high value on the ability to cover longer distances and walk at a higher walking speed.

 

  • Mimics lost muscle function with powered propulsion at toe-off
  • Plantar flexion during rollover provides extra comfort when walking and increased stability when going down slopes
  • Reduces joint strain through increased support on the prosthetic side

 

It's more than a prosthetic foot. It's a foundation.

Empower – powered propulsion

Cover longer distances at a higher walking speed

The Empower delivers the exact amount of propulsion that you need to push off and move forward, with every step.

More stable gait when walking down slopes

When walking downhill, the Empower is lowered to adapt to the slope of the ground. This gives you more stability because you can put your whole foot on the ground faster.

Coping with everyday life 

Slopes and stairs are often a challenge. Compensating for missing muscle functions requires a great deal of effort. The Empower gives you the power that is needed for forward and upward movements. This enables you to overcome obstacles.

Relief function for a more natural appearance

The Empower is lowered to the floor when sitting. This not only looks more natural, it also relieves your residual limb.

Reduced joint strain

The Empower improves the gait pattern by providing support, thus reducing joint strain. The prosthetic foot can also help reduce knee and lower back pain.

Devin

The Empower changed my life. Thanks to the Empower, I can work an 8-hour shift and more without pain. It is really the most adaptable ankle joint I've ever stood on. The foot has given me back the quality of life that I have been dreaming of for over twelve years. The Empower is really revolutionary.

Rob

“My goal is to get back to where I was before my accident. I often had back pain. I simply wasn’t able to carry out my tasks at work properly. Since I got the Empower, I can do absolutely everything I used to do.”

Functionality

Energy with every step

How the Empower works

The Empower imitates the original functions of the muscles and tendons, thereby ensuring a smoother movement sequence and a more physiological gait pattern. Active propulsion is a unique feature, providing high-energy support for every step. The leg and entire body are propelled forwards. Your weight is gently transferred to the sound limb. At the same time, sensors regulate the intensity of the forward thrust required for the respective situation and the most suitable foot position.
