Frequently Asked Questions
QuickFoot is a revolutionary new device. It makes sense that you’ve got some questions.
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.
Does it really only take three seconds to swap feet?
Yes! After pressing the button to release your prosthetic foot, line up the pylon with the new foot and step down lightly. QuickFoot’s auto-align mechanism will make sure everything falls into place. When you hear the click, you’re good to go!
Can I install QuickFoot myself?
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.
How do I clean QuickFoot?
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.
How much does QuickFoot weigh?
The weight of QuickFoot will change depending on the build style and configuration, but the base model weighs approximately 45 grams.
What is QuickFoot's build height?
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.
How durable is QuickFoot?
QuickFoot has been tested to two million cycles at 300 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.
I am a competitive K4 athlete. Is QuickFoot right for me?
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.
How do I obtain replacement parts for QuickFoot?
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 QuickFoot is installed, how frequently should I visit my O&P professional?
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.
