Managing Phantom Limb Pain
Learning to Walk with a Prosthetic Leg
The élan is a new microprocessor-controlled hydraulic foot from Endolite that uses patented microprocessor-controlled technology to provide real time, simultaneous adjustments as the user walks, allowing for a smoother gait without thought from the user. It is designed to adapt dynamically to provide assistance when walking on a variety of surfaces and changing gait speeds.
The élan provides assistance in forward progression and a brake effect when walking down an incline, resulting in optimized momentum and security for the user. This allows the user to perform daily routines that include negotiating uneven terrain, slopes and ramps, all with less effort, increased stability, and greater confidence.
The élan is recommended for moderately active amputees with the ability or potential for ambulation with variable cadence and who may benefit from enhanced security, functionality and increased confidence on uneven surfaces, slopes and ramps.
