First individual, 3D-printed pediatric prosthetic foot worldwide
Custom-made to the needs of children
Mecuris’ FirStep is the world's first 3D printed pediatric prosthetic foot. For our smallest customers we offer the FirStep already from a length of 120mm (shoe size EUR 19.5).
Adjustment accurate to the millimeter
As the child grows, the foot length and width can be continuously adjusted to the millimeter at any time. Starting at a foot length of 200mm onwards, the child can smoothly change to the adult foot NexStep without having to get used to a new prosthetic foot.
> Improved gait pattern and high acceptance thanks to individual adjustment together with the child:
> Foot length: 120 - 220mm
> Foot width: 55-80mm
> Heel height: 0-8mm
> Weight of the child
> Strength of the glass fiber spring component (adjusting the energy return)
> Color + design (child-friendly imprint or medical supply store logo)
> High energy return
> Low overall height: from 45mm (depending on foot size and configuration)
> Comfortable to wear due to low weight (approx. 95 at 120mm)
> Approved up to 25 kg (DIN EN ISO 10328:2006 Reduced load level)
> Low maintenance: no mechanics, no hydraulics
> Easy to clean:
> Can be worn without cosmetic foot shell (rubber cosmetics).
> Simple rinsing is sufficient
> Wearable barefoot thanks to non-slip sole
> Easy connection via pyramid adapter for children (with M8 screw)
> Warranty: 2 years legal warranty excluding wearing parts
High acceptance through co-determination
By including the child in the choice of color and the individual design of the optics, the self-confidence of the small wearers is increased and an immediate acceptance of the prosthetic foot is achieved.

Customized prosthesis in just three easy steps
Mecuris’ FirStep is made to measure in just three steps by the orthopaedic technician via the webbased Mecuris Solution Platform (MSP). The orthopaedic technician has the possibility to decide together with the children and their parents about the individual characteristics of the child's prosthetic foot on our MSP. Thus, the children are already involved in the development process of "their foot". Take this opportunity and show the youngest wearers that they can have a significant influence on their appearance.
The printing process
We manufacture the individual children's prosthetic foot by laser sintering in order to guarantee a perfect fit. The properties of the high-performance plastic - PA 12 - are ideally suited for the manufacture of medical products and meet the highest safety and quality requirements.
Our commitment to quality
Children always present us with the greatest possible challenges: They do not fit into mobility classes, because there are no limits to their imagination and their urge to move - and that's a good thing. We want to meet the demand to provide these movement artists with a high-quality prosthetic foot that reliably accompanies them from the very first step.
