Prosthetic Ankle, AMP-Foot 2.0


Yet another prosthetic limb has entered the world. But why is this one special, you might ask?

The end goal of prosthetic limb development is always to make a prosthetic that can go above and beyond the original limb, uses energy efficiently, and emulates the natural motion of the actual body part.

Well this is what this prosthetic ankle does. Called AMP-Foot 2.0, this robot prosthetic is special in that it uses a smaller motor that constantly runs, rather than a larger motor that activates every time the prosthetic is moved. However, this smaller motor primarily relies on somethings as simple as rubber bands and springs to store potential motion energy.

Because of this interesting trait, this prosthetic ankle is special in that it has a lower net energy requirement, and the batteries can be smaller and weigh less.

And here’s a really long video of someone walking with the prosthetic.

    Да это существенная переплата, но за пять лет может случится всякое, поэтому лучше застраховать риски.
