emPOWER Ankle by BionX
The Only Prosthesis with Powered Propulsion has been redesigned.
-Replaces the function & power of lost muscles and tendons.
-Gives net positive energy rather than taking it away – even up ramps, hills & stairs.
-Life-like ankle movement that normalizes your walking gait.
-Significantly reduces joint forces to help alleviate pain and the potential for osteoarthritis.
-Adjusts ankle power, resistance and flexion in real-time.
-Centers your patient’s balance for confidence across any surface.
Increased energy and less fatigue to walk farther and faster
The emPOWER Ankle is still the only prosthesis that replaces the function & power of lost muscles & tendons which gives energy instead of taking it away – even up ramps, hills & stairs. With up to 2 times more battery life than BiOM, the emPOWER Ankle provides even more energy to reduce fatigue and get through your day. In clinical studies, patients using the BiOM Ankle increased their walking speed an average of 23% over conventional prosthetics.1, 2
Patients who walk more, have a lower BMI, as well as a lower incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and associated co-morbidities which cost payers $176B in the U.S. alone.3,4
Normalized gait reduces joint forces to help alleviate pain and the potential for oesteoarthritis
The emPOWER Ankle is the only prosthesis with life-like movement that normalizes your patient’s walking gait. emPOWER’s enhanced power delivery significantly reduces joint forces to help alleviate pain and the potential for oesteoarthritis.1,5
Real-time ankle control for improved safety and stability across any surface
The emPOWER Ankle is still the only prosthesis that controls ankle power, resistance and flexion in real-time for stability across any surface. The emPOWER Ankle helps center your patient’s balance for safety across variable terrain – even rain, snow and dirt.
