Sidekicks Key Features

  • Uneven Ground Compliance. The combination of a flexible platform with anatomical ankle motion provides excellent ground compliance on uneven terrain.
  • Ankle Rotation. The Sidekicks also allow some torsional rotation, reducing socket forces and unwanted torque.
  • Moulded Tread. Adhered to the plate with a molecular bond, the moulded tread provides excellent grip and good durability.
  • Water Friendly. For water use, Sidekicks provide adjustable dorsiflexion and planterflexion, giving the bilateral transfemoral amputee the opportunity to optimize balance and stability in real-life environments.
  • Custom Gait Matching. Swapping bumpers and carrying out fine-tune adjustments through the Stride Control feature throughout the rehabilitation process improves core muscle strength; particularly useful for the transition to microprocessor knees.
