Prosthetic foot ‒ 1C68 Triton side flex
Benefits at a glance
Adapts effortlessly to sideward slopes

Standing safely on unsteady surfaces
A boat tour through Amsterdam: What a great surprise from her boyfriend Felix! The couple take a lot of selfies, and these carefree images show that Marije’s prosthetic foot gives her secure, worry-free footing – even on unsteady surfaces.
Moving in confined spaces
A quick movement between the sink and fridge, a small step to the side towards the cutlery drawer. Thanks to her Triton side flex, Marije can prepare a meal in a hurry when she has to – before her next shift at the hospital.
Relaxed leaning and standing

Safe and comfortable movement
Thanks to her Triton side flex, everyday activities like quickly moving her bicycle down the steps from the hallway or carrying the weekly shopping up to the flat aren’t a challenge for Marije.
Standing with legs apart: safe and comfortable

Afraid of water? Not with the Triton side flex!
