In the video you can see a NEURO SWING partial foot prosthesis in practical use. The patient had to undergo a forefoot amputation after the sole of his foot became inflamed following an injury. The patient now wears a prosthesis covering the ankle with NEURO SWING system ankle joint in combination with an individually designed residual limb socket. This state-of-the-art medical device compensates for the functional shortening of the forefoot lever and thus enables the patient to stand and walk in a physiological manner.
The video shows a patient with CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease). CMT is a progressive disease of the peripheral nerves. Both motor and sensory nerves are affected.
Milena says: “I am no longer afraid of standing in the workshop all day or of walking long distances. Rather, I am happy about every step I take with the NEURO SWING Carbon AFOs. Instead of looking at my feet with every step I take, I can just look straight ahead and trust the orthoses completely without stumbling.”
