Improving the lives of below-knee amputees
Your Backup Device
As a below-knee amputee, there will often be times when you can’t use your permanent prosthetic. Soreness, irritation, bruises and wounds can make wearing your prosthetic too painful to wear. You may have to give your residual limb a rest for weeks at a time, often under Doctor’s orders. The iWALK3.0 places pressure on different areas of the leg, so it gives those tired muscles and joints a break.
Or perhaps repairs and adjustments mean you have to do without your prosthetic for days. It’s also a great alternative if you don’t want to subject your expensive prosthetic to water, mud, sand and other contaminants. Crutches used to be the only alternative, but not any more. The iWALK3.0 is your reliable backup device, allowing you to quickly and easily transition from your prosthetic, maintaining your freedom and a functional lifestyle.
