Ossur's PROPRIO FOOT Provides Unmatched Stability and Safety
August 01, 2008
Ossur's PROPRIO FOOT® is an artificially intelligent, motor-powered prosthesis that helps replace the function that the body's central nervous system would normally play.
- Sense: Using advanced motion-sensing accelerometers, the PROPRIO FOOT can "sense" the surroundings of each step and accommodate for action.
- Think: As fast as it measures, the data is fed into the "brain" of the device through TerrainLogicTM, identifying specific motions to enable a response to variations.
- Act: Foot motion is continuously analyzed. For each stride, gait pattern recognition algorithms in the foot are used to detect and identify when and where a user is walking.
