The Niagara Foot keel is an energy-return prosthetic foot that has been shown to improve walking performance and reduce user fatigue in small-cohort studies in Thailand and El Salvador. Initial feedback from clinicians and users in Canada and Nigeria has been positive.
The device takes advantage of new low-cost engineering plastics that can be injection molded in high volumes and meets ISO standards for static and cyclic testing. Currently, there are two models with different mechanical properties that can be tuned to the needs of the client. The keel fits most commercial covers, and a new high-durability cover is under development.
