Vertical shock absorption is provided by the Fusion Foot and has been since the foot’s release. But we’re still hearing of some doubts and contradictions from others in the market. Take it from us…we know what we’re talking about.
Our test data shows that the Fusion Foot clearly exhibits vertical displacement under load. As always, the final coding decision rests with the practitioner, but we suggest that L-5987 (shank foot system with vertical loading pylon) is entirely appropriate for this foot. Take a look at a short video clip demonstrating the Fusion Foot’s vertical shock absorption.
