Freedom Innovations Kinnex

Stay Grounded. Feel Connected.

Freedom Kinnex integrates the world’s fastest responding microprocessor ankle/foot technology and carbon fiber to provide low – to moderate impact K3 ambulators the stability they expect – instantly.   Unmatched ground compliance, improved comfort, and automated heel height adjustments keep users firmly grounded and connected, wet or dry. Designed for low to moderate K3 level ambulators that require unsurpassed ground compliance for everyday activities. With 30 degrees of microprocessor controlled motion, 20° plantar and 10° dorsi, Kinnex allows the prosthetic user to navigate environmental obstacles such as: ramps, slopes, uneven terrain, and stairs with added confidence and stability. This motion also reduces internal socket pressures and improves the comfort when sitting, squatting or standing.

Target Users
• Low to moderate K3 level ambulators that require unsurpassed ground compliance for everyday activities.
• Prosthetic users that require the ankle to independently adjust to changes in terrain and speed.
• Occasional Water Submersion

Ability Prosthetics and Orthotics, Inc. (Exton, PA) and Freedom Innovations, LLC (Irvine, CA) are currently running a Clinical Research partnership to study Freedom’s new Kinnex™ Microprocessor Ankle.  The Kinnex™ Microprocessor Ankle Study will compare the benefits of a new microprocessor prosthetic ankle-foot against a typical carbon fiber prosthetic ankle-foot. Freedom has developed a novel microprocessor ankle, the Kinnex™, which allows increased ankle function for lower limb amputees.
