Microprocessor feet are a type of hydraulic ankle/feet that use various sensors to continuously monitor the user’s movement and adjust both the angle and stiffness of the hydraulic ankle in real-time.
This technology offers better ankle movement and foot control on uneven terrain, inclines or declines, and stairs, which may result in decreased socket pressures, reduced risk of stumbling, and improved prosthetic mobility.
Some important things to consider include that this type of foot is heavier than many other foot options and must be charged regularly.
Many users find that microprocessor feet pair well with microprocessor knees.
