I am a below knee (bk) amputee. Can i use the iWALK2.0?
Absolutely, the iWALK2.0 is an everyday item for many below-knee amputees who use it in common situations when they can’t, or don’t want to, wear their prosthetic leg. For example, resting the limb because of pain, abrasion or sores might be necessary. Other examples are showering, short trips to the shops, going to the gym, etc. The iWALK2.0 is also commonly used as a training device for new amputees who are learning to walk on a prosthetic, or for those who cannot yet tolerate a prosthetic limb. And if your prosthetic isn’t available – for example, if it’s getting repaired – the iWALK2.0 is your best substitute.
An important feature of the iWALK2.0 is that the mounts for the calf strap slide forward and back on the knee platform. For amputees, this feature is key, as it allows forward placement of the strap to accommodate residual limbs as short as four inches.
