Bionic Ankle For AK Users

iWalk announces the availability of its new Biom bionic lower limb system for above-knee amputees (Biom AK). The new Biom AK is an ankle system that that works with select microprocessor knees to restore natural motion through personalized bionic technology. The device now gives AK amputees access to the benefits of the original Biom device, which provides a powered push-off during plantar flexion to propel an amputee forward. It reacts in real time so the user does not have to wait for the prosthesis to respond, resulting in ankle function that very nearly approximates nonamputee gait.
