Although a complex relationship, sprint speed can be a function of prosthetic sprint foot shape and stiffness, and the carbon fibre sprinting prostheses can be optimised however, increasing foot stiffness considerably may be made at the expense of energy efficiency. Available off the shelf, build to order and custom from cast.
All that is about to change — not only because prostheses are being built with materials found in sports cars and jet airplanes or because designers are giving their creations an exuberant, unapologetic carbon-fiber sparkle or even because nerve reintegration and myoelectrics are offering some amputees the joy of normal function.
