Balance Foot J

Balance Foot J


HC040003

Balance Foot J is designed to meet the needs of slower speed walkers. It is lightweight with a heel that provides stability and cushioning at heel strike. Together with the full-length keel the Balance J provides excellent stability and support.

Balance™ Foot J Features

Active Tibial Progression

Active Tibial Progression

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.

Benefit: More natural gait and reduced walking effort.


Full Length Toe Lever

Full Length Toe Lever

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.

Benefit: Improved walking symmetry and reduced impact to the sound limb.


Proportional Response

Proportional Response

The layering of carbon fiber, optimized through extensive computer analysis and mechanical testing, ensures that the deflection of the carbon fiber heel and forefoot components are proportional to the user’s weight and impact level.

Benefit: Customized construction optimizes walking efficiency thus reducing fatigue for the user.
