This pediatric foot is precisely adjustable for each wearer. From very small to large ( just not an off the shelf product)

Saltwaterproof, Sauna ready
Customizable in size and design
Not only suitable for the shower, but also for the way from the hotel to the beach or a day at the Spa
The absence of cosmetics means that there is much more direct contact with the floor, giving the wearer good control
Is the foot also available with cosmetics?
No. The innovative design of the NexStep allows you to walk without a foot shell. This makes it extremely easy to care for and provides good contact with the ground
Can I determine the height of the prosthetic foot individually?
No. The installation height depends on the foot length.
What material is the foot made of?
The body of the foot consists of polyamide (more precisely PA12 and more precisely PA2200). Its spring element is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFK or CFK)
What material is the cover made of?
Our solid covers (standard covers) are made of polyamide 12, for flexible covers we use TPU (on request)
