You are active, dynamic, and always on the go. In your leisure time, do you like to play basketball or tennis and also take on other sporting challenges? In that case, the 1E56 Axtion® foot may be an excellent complement to your prosthesis system. We developed the Axtion® especially for active persons with a body weight up to 125 kilograms. It is ideally suited for cases where only a low structural height is available.

High-quality materials increase the level of wearer comfort

Due to its innovative design and high-quality materials such as carbon, the prosthesis foot offers many advantages for daily use: The heel impact is automatically dampened, giving you a soft rollover. Therefore you move more easily and safely and don't tire out as quickly. The residual limb is relieved.

When you start the next step, the Axtion® actively supports your forward movement. It has excellent energy return in the forefoot, which allows for smooth, natural and dynamic walking. Therefore nothing stands in the way of sporting activities such as tennis, which subject you to greater impact stress. The Axtion® also allows for comfortable and energy-saving walking during the daily challenges at work and at home.

Due to its low structural height, the Axtion® can be combined optimally with components such as the C-Leg® or Harmony® system. In addition, the foot is especially lightweight and offers you a high level of wearer comfort. The newly developed heel wedges allow the foot to be adjusted to your individual needs quickly and easily. The Axtion® received the renowned reddot design award in 2005.


The 1E56 Axtion® is suitable for prosthesis wearers with transtibial or transfemoral amputation, knee disarticulation, or hip disarticulation with moderate to very high levels of activity (mobility grades 3 and 4). The maximum allowable body weight is 125 kilograms.
