Smooth or rough terrain, indoors and out, no other foot simulates a more fluid, graceful walking gait.The tarsal core and Achilles Strap provide multi-axial function, while the Achilles Strap enhances forward motion, giving users ideal proportions of balance and agility.
Talux now comes with a sandal toe, to accommodate a greater variety of footwear options.Emulating many of the anatomical features of the human foot, the Talux has been specially designed to provide fluid, natural walking motion in a variety of terrains, for amputees of low to moderate activity.
Vertical forces generated at heel contact are stored and translated into a linear motion described as Active Tibial Progression. This action reduces the need to actively push the body forward using the contralateral foot and also equalizes stride length.
The Carbon-X Active Heel stores the energy during loading response as the amputee transfers his or her body weight onto the prosthetic foot. Energy is gradually released from the heel providing optimal return for forward progression of the limb.
The full length keel/toe lever matches the length of the sound foot, providing improved support to the prosthetic limb during late stance. It ensures that users spend equal time on the prosthetic foot and natural limb, thus providing improved walking dynamics and reduced impact to the sound limb.
Multi-axial compliance of the foot provides improved ground contact during ambulation on uneven surfaces.
The layering of carbon fibre, optimised through extensive computer analysis and mechanical testing, ensures that the deflection of the carbon fibre heel and forefoot components are proportional to the user’s weight and impact level. Sandal toe foot designs incorporate a split between the first and second toe.
