Hydraulic Ankle Product Range

Patients’ requirements vary, depending on their needs. Just as people’s needs are unique, so are our hydraulic ankles. Our biomimetic design philosophy runs through the whole range of Endolite ankles.

Echelon

The award-winning Echelon is a waterproof hydraulic ankle that absorbs and damps on impact, self-aligns on rough and sloping surfaces, then remains dorsiflexed at toe-off. These design features help reduce abnormal pressures at the socket interface and other joints, promote comfort and postural symmetry to help reduce the risk of falls and preserve musculoskeletal health.

EchelonVAC

Optimal socket connection is critical to an amputee’s comfort, security and stability. By pairing Biomimetic Hydraulic Technology with an elevated vacuum system, the design of EchelonVAC works to create a secure and comfortable socket connection.

By harnessing natural ankle motion, EchelonVAC quietly creates elevated vacuum, helping to maintain an optimally fitting socket throughout the day.

Elan

Elan mimics natural muscle resistance and ankle motion by adapting hydraulic resistance levels to optimise stability when standing, on slopes and uneven terrain. This encourages more symmetrical limb loading, faster walking speed and reduced compensatory movements. The ankle pivot point is optimally positioned close to the natural weight line for a more natural response through the gait cycle.

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

EchelonVT

EchelonVT combines the advanced hydraulic technology of Echelon with an additional rotation and vertical shock absorption element, to reduce the shear forces at the socket interface. This reduces the rate of loading at the socket interface and allows the socket to rotate with the residual limb, rather than against it. This means the user is able to move and adapt more freely, making EchelonVT ideal for taking part in activities such as golf and hiking.
