Elan mimics natural muscle resistance and ankle motion by adapting hydraulic resistance levels to optimise stability when standing, on slopes and uneven terrain. This encourages more symmetrical limb loading, faster walking speed and reduced compensatory movements. The ankle pivot point is optimally positioned close to the natural weight line for a more natural response through the gait cycle.
The result is smoother, safer and more natural walking, helping to preserve the body for the long term.
The Endolite élan foot is a revolutionary prosthetic foot/ankle system
with microprocessor controlled speed and terrain response. Sensors
continuously monitor environmental feedback and the algorithm changes the
foot characteristic to offer the safest, most comfortable and energy
efficient response on the flat, descending or ascending ramps and stairs.
The hydraulic ankle control ensures silent operation and sinuous movement
that biomimetically matches the Activity Level 3 user’s body and walking
