BiOM

BiOM (fromerly iWalk) is a Massachusetts based company whose sole product is the PowerFoot One. The Powerfoot One has two powerful microprocessors and six environmental sensors evaluate and adjust ankle position, stiffness, damping and power thousands of times a second. Control algorithms generate human-like force while traversing level ground, slopes and stairs, providing active amputees with near-normal gait and lower energy expenditure compared to state-of-the-art passive prosthetics.
