The Challenge

Every day you are challenged with improving your patients’ mobility so that they can be more active, comfortable and confident in their lives.
The BiOM Ankle has been redesigned to give you and your patients more – emPOWER offers all of the trusted benefits of the BiOM Ankle in a more compact, intelligent and refined design.

Increased energy and less fatigue to walk farther and faster

The emPOWER Ankle is still the only prosthesis that replaces the function & power of lost muscles & tendons which gives your patients energy instead of taking it away – even up ramps, hills & stairs. With up to 2 times more battery life than BiOM, the emPOWER Ankle provides even more energy to reduce fatigue and get your patients through their day. In clinical studies, patients using the BiOM Ankle increased their walking speed an average of 23% over conventional prosthetics.
Patients who walk more, have a lower BMI, as well as a lower incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and associated co-morbidities

Normalized gait reduces joint forces to help alleviate pain and the potential for osteoarthritis

The emPOWER Ankle is the only prosthesis with life-like movement that normalizes your patient’s walking gait. emPOWER’s enhanced power delivery significantly reduces joint forces to help alleviate pain and the potential for oesteoarthritis.

Real-time ankle control for improved safety and stability across any surface

The emPOWER Ankle is still the only prosthesis that controls ankle power, resistance and flexion in real-time for stability across any surface. The emPOWER Ankle helps center your patient’s balance for safety across variable terrain – even rain, snow and dirt.
