Our goal in developing the C-Walk® was to mimic the natural human gait as closely as possible. A smooth and symmetric gait considerably diminishes the impact to the prosthetic side and relieves strain on the sound side of the body as well. Along with this, you reduce the risk of musculoskeletal damage due to compensatory movements and poor gait habits. The result is better quality of life for your patients.
The unique design of the C-Walk® helps your patients achieve an improved gait. The basic principle is the dynamic interlinking of the C-shaped carbon fiberspring and the base spring. These two elements are linked by a titanium control ring.
The C-Walk® acts like a virtual joint, which is positioned close to the physiological ankle. Because of this the ankle moments and the ground reaction forces are almost identical to the sound side limb.
The progressive characteristic of the C-Walk® spring system provides just the right amount of movement and energy return required for each phase of rollover.
This gives your patients a smoother and more natural rollover, which allows for a comfortable and dynamic gait in every situation.
