Frequently Asked Questions
QuickFoot lets you quickly swap your feet. Let’s see if we can answer your questions just as quickly.
Below are the some of the most common things we hear. If your question isn’t listed below, get in touch—we’re happy to help.
Yes! After twisting the lock to release your prosthetic foot, line up your pylon with the new foot and step down lightly. QuickFoot’s auto-align mechanism will make sure everything falls into place. Twist again, and you’re good to go!
QuickFoot should only be installed by your licensed O&P professional. While QuickFoot is very easy to use once installed, your doctor will ensure that everything is aligned and configured to work with your current prosthetic limb.
QuickFoot is designed so that a quick wipe-down of the lower cone with a towel or microfiber cloth to remove dirt and dust will usually be sufficient. If a more thorough cleaning is required, we recommend soap and water.
The weight of QuickFoot will change depending on the build style and configuration, but the base model weighs less than 270 grams.
The build height of QuickFoot will change depending on the build style and configuration options, but the base model will add approximately 80 mm to your prosthesis.
QuickFoot has been tested to three million cycles at 250 pounds of force. While this should exceed the needs for most users, we recommend replacing QuickFoot when you replace your lower-limb prosthetic, usually every 3 to 5 years.
QuickFoot will stand up to the demands of most beginner- to intermediate-level athletes but please contact us if you believe your demands exceed these levels. We have new products under development for elite athletes and would love to work with you.
Because QuickFoot works as part of your lower-limb prosthetic and has many intricate components, we do not offer individual replacement parts. However, get ahold of us and we can determine if you’re eligible for a complete replacement of QuickFoot.
Once installed properly, QuickFoot requires no special maintenance. Continue visiting your licensed O&P professional with the same frequency recommended by your doctor. However, in the event of discomfort or misalignment of your prosthetic limb, make an appointment as soon as possible.
