The Ceterus™, a new prosthetic foot from
Ossur's Flex-Foot® product line, mimics the body's natural
twisting motion, providing responsive rotation for a smoother range
As the user pivots on the foot, the Torsion Control Cell™
is gradually twisted and compressed, providing a steady, elastic
movement with no abrupt stops. Both rotary forces on the knee joint
and shear forces on the residual limb are reduced, allowing
amputees to fully enjoy numerous activities.
The Ceterus features a built-in vertical shock pylon which
absorbs impact to the residual limb during the entire stance phase
and is fully adjustable for optimized function. The slim profile of
the Ceterus is easy to cosmetically finish. The foot is ideal for
amputees weighing up to 325 lbs (146 kg) with low and moderate
