Meridium - Educational videos
Watch the videos below to learn more about the adjustment of the Meridium with M-Soft.
Basic Mode - Heel Height Adjustment
Meridium allows automatic or manual heel height adjustment of up to 5 cm. This video shows the movement pattern for manually adjusting the heel height after a shoe change.
Basic Mode - Walking
The resistances for plantar and dorsiflexion are individually set by the OT for the user. This video shows the typical parameter adjustment of Meridium when walking on level ground. In addition to the parameter adjustment, the video includes the first steps in the walking bar, as well as engaging the standing stop. To clarify the effects of the paramter adjustment in M-Soft, minimum and maximum values of the setting range are also displayed.
Basic Mode - Advanced Functions
The Meridium Prosthetic Foot is able to recognize walking downstairs and to adjust its behavior accordingly. The corresponding DF resistance downstairs is individually set by the OT for the user. This video shows the different variants of walking downstairs and the typical procedure of the adjustment process. To clarify the effects, minimum and maximum values of the setting range are also displayed.
The Meridium has MyModes for special types of movement (e.g., golf, ...). These are preset via the adjustment software by the orthopedic technician. This video shows the change of the MyMode using the movement pattern and as an example the use of a home trainer.
In safety mode (for example, when the battery is drained) the Meridium switches to individually set resistances for Plantar and DF. The standing stop is not available. The values set by the OT should provide a compromise between statics and dynamics. This video shows the impact and training of walking in safety mode, on level surfaces, on ramps and on stairs.
