iWalk PowerFoot Gait Animation
Check out this 3 million dollar bionic foot! For a walking gait cycle (not running cycle) it shows excellent heel rocker; and the appearance of a little hallux limitus (an articulating first metatarsophalangeal joint with an eccentric axis is likely a bit complicated to produce)…….But, for all that money you would have thought they could have added more ankle rocker ! The model gets to what looks like about 110-115 degrees which is the lower limit of what is necessary. It is why you see such an early heel rise in the video. Why don’t folks just call us…..we would have taken $100,000 for a consulting fee on this one to help them get it right ! Despite its shortcomings, it is quite a remarkable piece of engineering, truly.
