Triton device debuts at Hanger event

Birmingham, AL-based Hanger on February 3 debuted its Triton smart ankle at the annual Hanger Education Fair and National Meeting in Las Vegas, where practitioners fit two amputee patients with the microprocessor-controlled prosthetic ankle-feet.

Eight pediatric amputees, recipients of a Hanger Kids Scholarship to Camp No Limits, helped kick off the event’s February 4 opening ceremony. Hanger donated $100,000 in 2014 to establish the scholarship, which sends 100 pediatric amputees and a family member to one of the 2014-2015 camps for children with limb loss or limb difference.

More than 850 clinicians and therapists attended the event, which also featured continuing O&P education, the second annual “Women in Leadership” course, and 125 exhibits and 400 exhibitors.
