The Solid Ankle Cushion Heel (SACH) foot represents a basic, durable, inexpensive prosthetic foot option geared toward those who require limited walking and have little variation in speed and types of terrain. SACH feet consist of a soft material molded over a more rigid inner piece that mimics the shape of a human foot. This type of foot may be used with patients’ very first prosthesis after amputation.
The SACH foot has sufficient shock absorption characteristics for limited walkers because of its large heel cushion, but due to its lack of flexibility and inability to accommodate uneven terrain, it is not ideal for moderate to high activity prosthesis users that desire to do more than household activities.
Your clinician will work with you to make the most appropriate decision based on your specific needs and goals.
