Not all prostheses are made equal. That’s where Blatchford’s EchelonVT comes in

There are prosthetic ankles, and then there’s the EchelonVT. Built with superior hydraulic technology to better mimic natural movement, it is a wonder in British engineering.

For wearers like Verona, the EchelonVT is a game changer to her active lifestyle, giving her the ability to carry on and work out just like she used to. Lifting weights, doing push-ups, sit-ups, and walking 4-5 miles a day, plus keeping up with her three kids, Verona rises to the challenge equipped with her EchelonVT.

Designed to give the wearer the ability to run around, and twist and turn, it is a remarkable prosthesis for active users. We find the function and benefits of the EchelonVT too numerous to count, but here are some key takeaways:

  • Greater control through hydraulic technology
  • Increased toe clearance reduces trips and falls
  • Rotation and vertical shock absorption
  • E-carbon foot springs for smoother action
  • Smoother, easier and more natural gait
  • More evenly balanced inter-limb loading
  • Greater satisfaction

When you’re ready to get off the couch and embrace the day, the EchelonVT is ready and able to match your drive.

To learn more about the EchelonVT and its incredible capabilities, explore this exclusive story from Verona as she talks about the difference that it made in her life.

“I was having a hard time being fit with the socket, and as soon as we changed the foot I had before, I felt the difference immediately. It changed everything. I wasn't working out, just sitting around, and then immediately the next day I was able to go out and walk 5 miles, feeling comfortable and feeling the difference with how the foot felt with every step. ”
