The award-winning Echelon is a waterproof hydraulic ankle that absorbs and damps on impact, self-aligns on rough and sloping surfaces, then remains dorsiflexed at toe-off. These design features help reduce abnormal pressures at the socket interface and other joints, promote comfort and postural symmetry to help reduce the risk of falls and preserve musculoskeletal health.

Key Features

  • Independent hydraulic control of plantar and dorsi-flexion
  • Biomimetic design simulates natural ankle motion
  • Toe up for swing through clearance
  • Natural toe position for sitting
  • e-carbon heel and toe springs
  • Elegant and compact for cosmetic finish
  • Sandal Toe Foot Shell

 

Unique & Proven Echelon Technology

The Echelon range sits at the heart of our pioneering prosthetic philosophy which makes our products so popular with users around the world. Created with a sharp focus on replicating a natural and safe walking experience, each product in the Echelon Range has a characteristic to suit different users and their requirements, providing confidence in every step.

 

 

SAFETY
  • Reduced risk of tripping and falls
    • Increased minimum toe clearance during swing phase1,2
  • Improving standing balance on a slope
    • 24-25% reduction in mean inter-limb centre-of-pressure root mean square (COP RMS)3
ENERGY EXPENDITURE
  • Reduced energy expenditure during walking
    • Mean 11.8% reduction in energy use on level ground, across all walking speeds4
    • Mean 20.2% reduction in energy use on slopes, across all gradients4
    • Mean 8.3% faster walking speed for the same amount of effort4
MOBILITY
  • Improved gait performance
    • Faster self-selected walking speed2,5-7
    • Higher PLUS-M scores than FlexFoot and FlexWalk style feet8
  • Improved ground compliance when walking on slopes
    • Increased plantarflexion peak during level walking, fast level walking and cambered walking9
    • Increased dorsiflexion peak during level walking, fast level walking and cambered walking9
  • Less of a prosthetic “dead spot” during gait
    • Reduced aggregate negative COP displacement5
    • Centre-of-pressure passes anterior to the shank statistically significantly earlier in stance5
    • Increased minimum instantaneous COM velocity during prosthetic-limb single support phase5
    • Reduced peak negative COP velocity7
    • Reduced COP posterior travel distance7
  • Improved ground compliance when walking on slopes
    • Increased plantarflexion range during slope descent10
    • Increased dorsiflexion range during slope ascent10
RESIDUAL LIMB HEALTH
  • Helps protect vulnerable residual limb tissue, reducing likelihood of damage
    • Reduced peak stresses on residual limb11
    • Reduced stress RMS on residual limb11
    • Reduced loading rates on residual limb11
LOADING SYMMETRY
  • Greater contribution of prosthetic limb to support during walking
    • Increased residual knee negative work6
  • Reduced reliance on sound limb for support during walking
    • Reduced intact limb peak hip flexion moment6
    • Reduced intact limb peak dorsiflexion moment6
    • Reduced intact ankle negative work and total work6
    • Reduced intact limb total joint work6
  • Better symmetry of loading between prosthetic and sound limbs during standing on a slope
    • Degree of asymmetry closer to zero for 5/5 amputees3
  • Reduced residual and sound joint moments during standing of a slope
    • Significant reductions in both prosthetic and sound support moments12
  • Less pressure on the sole of the contralateral foot
    • Peak plantar-pressure13
  • Improved gait symmetry
    • Reduced stance phase timing asymmetry14
USER SATISFACTION
  • Patient reported outcome measures indicate improvements
    • Mean improvement across all Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire domains15
    • Bilateral patients showed highest mean improvement in satisfaction15
  • Subjective user preference for hydraulic ankle
    • 13/13 participants preferred hydraulic ankle13
