RE: Tigertats

I realise that the esprit has no ankle, but it does provide a very natural gait (as does the Trustep foot); i must admit, i've never noticed the Esprit having a short roll-over (as it has a full length keel)

I've never used a Mica Genesis foot so i can't really comment on it

I would recommend the Esprit to anyone of K3 bordering on K4 activity though



RE: Dick Stevens

Alot of companies offer 30 day trials now, i would definitely encourage anyone 2  take advantage of this as a Prosthetic Foot is such a subjective matter (i.e. its all down to personal preference!) and what may work well 4 one person may not be suitable for another...

I don't think that prosthetic companies will ever sell to the general public. Some sort of liability thing.
Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.

Hey steve,

This thread is going back a few years...

If i was an amputee i would have a College Park Trustep - end of story. One of the best feet on the market ; reasonably priced, highly durable, easy to maintain, excellent conformity, extremely natural gait, excellent on uneven ground. Job done!

Just want to throw another wrench in your search for feet.  Feet can be tried and returned within a 30 or 60 day time frame not sure, I have tried different feet  but you might want to take a look at Freedom-Innovations feet.  The highlander gives you eversion and inversion and is light weight, depending on your activity level and weight level the Renegade AT is an awesome foot (not heavy enough for it to work for me).  I love my highlanders.  Go to the website and then ask your practioner to talk to the rep to try.  I can walk on uneven terrain with out aproblem with the highlander.
Remember you are the ultimate decision maker and try before you buy.
Good Luck :)
