Adaptive Ankle



The Adaptive Positioning ankle uses a novel non-backdrivable actuation system based on a cam design resulting in an ultra-low profile–50mm built height–that would have been impossible to obtain with conventional transmission systems. Its control system adapts to the ground inclinations and actively increases foot clearance in swing phase, making ambulation safer and more comfortable for transtibial amputees.
