Ergogenic Foot/Shank System
The Ergogenic system is a pre-positioned modified energy returning elastic foot attached to an elastic Trylon shank. There are no bolts or articulated segments. The elastic shank extends all the down to the bottom of the foot which increases the length of the shank relative to the length of the prosthesis. The Ergogenic system is recommended when the length of the residuum is equal to or less than 53% of the leg length (MTP to floor). Use loaner Dycor “K Series” feet and an inelastic aluminum pylon for alignment and measurement (shimming and measurements are the same as Satylite and Matryx Systems).
In addition to shimming and measuring specifications, provide the following information when ordering:
