Vista Ankle is a single-axis prosthetic ankle joint designed for elevated vacuum suspension.
The vacuum comes from the ankle movementsduring gait, i.e. cyclically from plantarflexion (PF) to dorsiflexion (DF). The barb is located inside the proximal tube clamp and thus the hose can be hidden in the pylon, which eliminates system failure caused by unprotected hose-barb connection.
Another feature of the Vista ankle is the distal female pyramid adapter that is compatible with a wide range of prosthetic feet.
