Echelon

Suitable for submersion (up to 1 metre)
Waterproof
Activity Level 3

The award-winning Echelon is a waterproof hydraulic ankle that absorbs and damps on impact, self-aligns on rough and sloping surfaces, then remains dorsiflexed at toe-off. These design features help reduce abnormal pressures at the socket interface and other joints, promote comfort and postural symmetry to help reduce the risk of falls and preserve musculoskeletal health.

Key Features

  • Independent hydraulic control of plantar and dorsi-flexion
  • Biomimetic design simulates natural ankle motion
  • Toe up for swing through clearance
  • Natural toe position for sitting
  • e-carbon heel and toe springs
  • Elegant and compact for cosmetic finish
  • Sandal Toe Foot Shell

Real Life Stories

Elaine’s Story

Scientifically Proven

Blatchford Biomimetic Hydraulic Technology mimics the dynamic and adaptive qualities of muscle actuation to encourage more natural gait. Multiple independent scientific studies, comparing Blatchford hydraulic ankle-feet to non-hydraulic feet, have shown:

  • Greater comfort, reduced socket pressures
  • Improved safety, reduced risk of trips and falls
  • Smoother, easier and more natural gait
  • More evenly balanced inter-limb loading
  • Greater satisfaction
