1E95 Challenger foot
The Challenger: A multi purpose prosthetic fitness foot
A winning choice for a diverse range of activities
The Challenger is a multi-purpose foot developed for the varying demands from everyday walking to recreational sports.
High deflection of the curved main spring provides excellent shock absorption, which is desired for court sports like tennis or basketball, and energy return for activities such as sprinting and long distance running. The base spring and adjustable heel damping allow for stability and control during rapid movements, while walking, and while standing.
The Challenger fits with most lower profile shoes and comes with exchangeable heel wedges to support a large variety of sports and other individual needs. Excellent choice for active individuals with below or above knee fittings.
Exchangeable heel wedge
The Challenger features flexible heel wedges with varying degrees of stiffness. Depending on the sport and level of strain, you can adapt the heel and roll-over characteristics yourself to your individual requirements in just one easy step.
Base spring for more stability
With its combination of a base spring and heel wedge, the Challenger offers you better control and therefore an enhanced level of stability – not only for sudden movements, but for walking and standing as well.
Water- and corrosion-resistant components
With the Challenger, you can participate in beach sports or spend time outdoors - even in poor weather conditions.
Main carbon fiber spring
Thanks to the unique design of its main spring, the Challenger stands out with its good impact dampening characteristics and efficient energy return that will support you during field and court sports as well as during jogging.

From a relaxed run in the forest to quick, spontaneous movements on the basketball court or in a tennis match – the Challenger is ideally suited to a broad range of sports in combination with the Genium X3. The prosthesis components are also water- and corrosion-resistant so you can participate in outdoor sporting activities, for example on the beach.
Today, smart technologies support people with disabilities in many ways. One such technology, which offers its users greater freedom and everyday quality of life, is called Genium. The tried and tested mechatronic knee joint has been further refined and improved based on customer and expert feedback. The Genium´s OPG (optimised physiological gait) allows for a demonstrably improved natural gait pattern.
