Hydraulic Ankle Pairing

Replicating Nature to Support a Healthy Future

Hydraulic Ankle Technology

Extensive studies into Blatchford's biomimetic hydraulic technology show numerous benefits and improvements to the quality of life.

The human ankle foot complex contains 28 bones and 33 joints that work in sequence to provide balance, stability and a seamless walking experience. Blatchford hydraulic ankles respond to the design specifications that natural movement dictates, fine-tuning joint position to align the body for optimum posture and comfort.

By continuously adjusting to absorb and release energy, our hydraulic ankles allow for an efficient roll-over, remaining perfectly aligned with the user for the next step to help reduce the risk of falls.

Pairing Microprocessor Control with Hydraulic Ankle Technology

By introducing Microprocessor Active Resistance Control to our hydraulic ankle technology, natural muscle resistance can be mimicked by adapting hydraulic resistance levels when standing and walking on slopes and uneven terrain to achieve an advanced level of control.

This encourages:

  • More symmetrical limb loading
  • Faster walking speed
  • Reduced compensatory movements

The result is smoother, safer and more natural walking, helping to preserve the body for the long term.
