It's finally here. my new foot.
This one is light years ahead of the old one technology-wise. It had a flexible heel as well as toe, and an shock absorber that also flexes laterally to a small degree, giving me a better angle of attack on uneven surfaces. It's got a new vacuum seal valve to ensure a tight fit, and it's slimmer and lighter than the old one. I can go upside someone's head with this one even better than I could with the old model, which is now being retained as a spare.And the fit's a lot better now, too. No more blistering or chafing. This one ROCKS.
Now I've got a week to test it to destruction and see if I can find any weak points in the new system. So what to try for a thoroughly proper test? I've got as few ideas, but my prosthetist probably isn't going to like them. Heh.
