A Study of AvalonK2
The main driving force behind advancing lower limb prosthetic technology in the 21st century is biomimetic design; reproducing the biomechanical performance of natural limbs. Inherent in this is recognising that different demographics of the amputee population have different biomechanical requirements, and that the engineering principles behind different devices must accommodate for this.
It is well documented that there are a number of biomechanical differences between the gait of elderly people and that of young people.
Falls & Health Concerns
As well as physical consequences, falls can impact other areas of life. 60% of amputees who fall say it affects their daily life and 36% report a loss of confidence.Read More
