The individual, 3D-printed children’s prosthesis foot from the very first step
The Mecuris FirStep is a 3D-printed prosthetic foot for children. It is perfectly adapted to their needs: dynamic, robust, easy to-carefor and waterproof meets all little movers’ requirements. Whether at home, during excursions to the (water) playground, splashing about, bathing, romping: with the FirStep there is no stopping them!. Simply rinsing off Mecuris’ FirStep frees it from sand, salt, slush and any mishap which may occur when it dries out. Parents and children can free their minds and discover their world with ease and self-confidence.
This is the Mecuris FirStep - CE marked and individually configurable
Now there is no stopping for little water fans: whether at home in the pool or on holiday at the beach - the FirStep does everything
Cool in design, accurate to the millimetre
FirStep is available from a foot length of 120mm. As the child grows, the foot length and width can be continuously adjusted and with millimeter precision at any time. Starting at the 220 mm foot length, the child can smoothly switch to Mecuris NexStep adult foot without having to get used to a new prosthetic foot.
Best of all, the children are actively involved in the design process of the prosthetic foot. Together with the CPO, the young user selects the color and design elements of his or her foot. The feeling of having helped design this cool prosthetic foot can increase the child's acceptance of the fitting and give them a new self-confidence in handling the prosthesis.
