Guest Post: Kevin McMahon, a transtibial amputee reviews the elan foot from Endolite

Mr. McMahon has generously given of his time to review the elan foot from Endolite. He feels as though it has greatly improved his ability to go up and down inclines but also given him a confidence that he has not had previously. Other feet he has tried have been the Trustep from College Park, Ceterus from Ossur, Echelon from Endolite, Proprio From Ossur, and now the elan.

Prosthetists will notice Mr. McMahon has an extremely strange alignment but it works for him. I will continue to make some minor changes to hone in his alignment but for the time being I can have been amazed at the increase in his activity level due to this foot.

    Alignment is fine. I had a pt like that too. Combat wounded Viet nam Vet
    with hip and knee involvement. Needed foot to be way outset to work for him.
    I was the first one to set it up that way because other prosthetists said it didn’t look right even though that is that worked well for him. Also had torque absorption and a compliant foot.
