New member of the Taleo family
Exceptional degree of mediolateral adaptability
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (September 1, 2021) – Smooth rollover, efficient energy return and supporting a dynamic gait. The Taleo prosthetic feet family adapt flexibly to each user’s individual gait characteristics and various surfaces.
Today, we are happy to announce the introduction of Taleo Side Flex, developed for users who value a high degree of socket comfort on uneven surfaces.
The Taleo Side Flex together with existing solution Triton Side Flex set a new standard for mediolateral flexibility. Compared with conventional prosthetic feet, its Terrain Adaptation Unit (TAU) lets it adapt to slopes right after heel strike to an exceptional degree.
For the user, this mean reduced sideward tilting moments in the prosthetic socket or knee, fewer compensating movements and secure full-surface ground contact while walking and standing.
Taleo Side Flex is part of the 60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee on selected carbon feet, offered by Ottobock. Simply order the foot the regular way and if the user is satisfied: Keep walking on it.
