LP Vari-flex With Evo
LP Vari-flex With Evo
For 25 years Flex-Foot® has been the foot of choice for prosthetists and amputees alike and with the new LP Vari-Flex with EVO, the evolution continues.
LP Vari-Flex with EVO is designed for transtibial amputees with long residual limbs, where the clearance is not enough for Vari-Flex® with EVOTM.
LP Vari-Flex with EVO offers similar benefits as the Vari-Flex with EVO only with less build height, it is easy to align, lightweight, easy to assemble and has a slender profile which makes it easy to cosmetically cover.
For amputees, it ensures the highest levels of confidence and security. Offering natural gait with less fatigue and ultimately less strain on the lower back and sound side, it is the ideal foot for any activity. The new EVO feature enables amputees to experience natural gait progression by utilizing the foot plate to its fullest potential. A more natural gait reduces fatigue and puts less strain on the lower back and sound side.
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 EVO (Energy Vector Optimization) feature is generated by controlling how the ground reaction force is transferred to the prosthetic foot. Each step is optimized through the magnitude, placement and direction of forces for maximum efficiency. EVO enables the amputee to develop the most natural gait progression possible which reduces fatigue and puts less pressure on the sound side.
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.
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.
A split toe feature allows the foot to adjust to uneven surfaces, allowing amputees to walk with stability and comfort on uneven ground.
