Our Technology

At Blatchford we share the belief that long-term health depends on the replication of the dynamic and adaptive qualities of natural limb movement.

The engineering of nature is the prime source of inspiration at the heart of Blatchford’s biomimetic design philosophy. Our research and engineering focus on the replication of the natural limb; it's biomimetic properties.

Blatchford's proprietary Performance Response Technology® has been incorporated into our entire portfolio of prosthetic ankles, feet and knees.

Biomimetic Design Technology in a Foot
We constructively challenge the standard, and we strive to innovate deliberately and improve how we deliver the best product to our customers and partners.

Redefining Outcomes

Our goal isn't to replace a limb. We aspire to reimagine life by redefining outcomes. We address the best possible mobility, function and comfort and go beyond movement to connect with people in ways they never dreamed possible.


Advanced Tech That is Second to None

Blatchford is a multi-award winning manufacturer of some of the world’s most advanced prosthetic technology. One of our more advanced intelligent prosthetic limb systems, Linx, has won engineering awards and is still the world's first and only fully microprocessor controlled limb system.

Linx mimics the complex structure of the human anatomy. It senses and analyses data from both the knee and ankle to provide a synchronised stream of instructions that coordinate the movement of the entire prosthetic limb.

Lower Limb Prosthetics and Innovative Design

Our innovation has no limits. We are curious and question everything to lead our industry. We strive to improve every life that we touch. Yet, we are more than just a prosthetics design company. We are a brand with a long history of innovating solutions.

Blatchford is a multi-award winning manufacturer of some of the world’s most advanced prosthetic technology. We combine clinical expertise and pioneering innovation to redefine mobility.

Our Biomimetic Prosthetics Are Tailored to Enhance the Natural Abilities of Human Legs

The best prosthesis (artificial limb) replicates the dynamic and adaptive qualities of natural limb movement. This approach has resulted in the design of the world’s first hydraulic ankle-foot and award-winning technology by the Blatchford team.

Biomimicry Technology - Tailored to Each Patient

Our engineers have developed one-of-a-kind, measurable, performance-response biomimicry technology used in our products. This technology is tailored to enhance the natural abilities of the legs and empower users to engage and enjoy life beyond movement.

Whatever performance you need, our products respond to that need. If you imagine life after amputation surgery to continue with the same activities before surgery, we support those goals. From easily standing up, to confidently climbing stairs or carrying groceries, to hitting the gym or enjoying outdoor activities, our products respond to your body, your life, your needs.

Blatchford's goal is for users of our products to feel confident, secure, and integrated with their tech, able to live their life as they imagine.

Enhancing Every Patient's Life

We focus on the measurable gain that our one-of-a-kind technology can add to an amputee’s life.

Unlike prosthetic manufacturers who may only look to replace a limb, we aspire to reimagine life. From the products we design to the prosthetists we train to use our technology, our focus is not only to address the best possible mobility, function, and comfort after amputation, but to help move and connect with people in ways that they never dreamed possible.

We understand that good mobility and wellness go hand-in-hand. Through our products and services, we strive to get the best outcome for every user.

Understanding Prosthetics

Whether you are a new amputee or have lived with amputation for a while, prosthetic technology can be overwhelming. We explain some of the technology behind today’s prosthetics and how Blatchford uses the natural working of the human body to influence the design of our products.
