Smart Ankle

(project ref. number: PR19-PAI-P1)

 

Robotic ankle prosthesis able to give a more natural and safe walk to the patient. It is the evolution of passive carbon fiber foot and is highly innovative thanks to a motorized mechanism that allows a more physiological movement. Thanks to the integrated sensors, this prosthesis can understand which phase of the movement the patient is in, cushioning the step during contact with the ground.
