Exton, PA-based Ability Prosthetics and Orthotics reported in September that it is collaborating with Freedom Innovations, headquartered in Irvine, CA, on a study comparing Freedom’s new Kinnex Microprocessor Ankle with a typical carbon fiber prosthetic ankle.
The study will include 30 patients who will complete three research visits involving standardized surveys, functional tests, and 2D motion analysis to measure the systems’ impact on mobility, balance, comfort, and walking on sloped surfaces.
