Powered prosthetic feet use battery power to provide propulsion or “push-off” at the end of each step, which is intended to reduce the effort required to take a step.
For active individuals who regularly walk up and down hills, ramps, and other uneven terrain, powered feet may be a good option. However, this type of foot tends to be fairly bulky, and the required batteries make it heavier than other options.
Your clinician will consider your needs and mobility goals and will make the best possible recommendation for you.
