True multi-axial foot for symes amputation

Mataronas, Brandilyn (LLU)

I have a patient with a symes amputation who is very active. His goals are that he would like to be able to squat at the gym and have greater stability on uneven ground when hiking. When he tries to squat, his prosthetic foot lifts up, but would like it to stay level with the floor. What type of foot would you recommend for this patient? Is there a true multi-axial foot for a symes amputation?

Thank you so much!
