The waterproof prosthetic foot for greater stability
The world's first 3D-printed waterproof prosthetic foot with a CE: Core element to a fully functional bathing prosthesis.
In line with our co-creation approach, the waterproof prosthetic foot, Mecuris’ NexStep is jointly tailored by CPOs and the patient to the individual measurements and wishes of the wearer. The result is a precisely fitting prosthetic foot whose appearance underlines the personality of each wearer, guarantees maximum comfort and highest quality.
In addition to the foot length, the NexStep’s foot width can also be adjusted. The shaped wide tread surface leads to more stability and support.
Mecuris NexStep as a bathing foot
These properties alone make it the ideal component of a sophisticated bath prosthesis. It also has a lower density than water. As a result, it has less buoyancy and therefore, good swimming properties. In addition, the NexStep does not need any extra cosmetic for it is already included in its attractive design. he advantage is that it can easily be rinsed off at the end of a bathing day, dries well and no sand or other particles will collect in a cosmetic shell. Thanks to the high stability and standing surface, even water sports can be carried out freely again.
As a further, undoubtedly unbeatable argument, are its everyday qualities. Wearers can put on the bathing prosthesis at home and comfortably get through the day with it. The NexStep prosthetic foot will provide excellent services thanks to a high energy return in the forefoot and heel area: Starting the day off with a nice breakfast, enjoying the day at the spa with a visit to the sauna and going out to dinner after that? All of this is no problem and will increases the wearer’s quality of life.
Impressions, stories and comments about the Mecuris NexStep:
There is currently no foot on the market that can compete with Mecuris’ NexStep when it comes to bathing supplies. Its greatest advantages are that it can be worn without a cosmetics shell, and thanks to its non-slip sole and wide tread surface, it provides a high degree of safety. In the past health insurance companies have often only approved simple standing aids for wet areas up to now, there is a growing realisation - at least in Germany - that a wearer has higher needs for a bathing prosthetic. He doesn't want to be additionally restricted in his possibilities. We make this possible withMecuris’ NexStep: It is (salt)waterproof, will not break a sweat g in the sauna and its wearers can also rely on it for everyday life. Thus a wearer, fitted with a NexStep, can put on his bathing prosthesis at home and is prepared for the day in the wellness area, at the lake or by the sea, without having to carry another prosthesis with him.
