Following years of accepting the Solid Ankle Cushion Heel (SACH) foot as the optimum compromise between durability and functional effectiveness, as well as being of reasonable cost, several new feet with dynamic elastic response qualities have been designed. The stimulus for these new designs is the recent development of materials which offer the potential to "store and release energy" in a manner that facilitates walking and running . Numerous new prosthetic feet have become available… CONTINUE READING
