BionX – emPOWER Ankle

An advanced powered ankle prosthesis

The emPOWER ankle is the latest and most advanced powered ankle from BionX, the company previously known as iWalk. BionX has taken the already innovative BiOM powered foot and ankle prosthesis and improved on it dramatically with a variety of improvements over previous generations of the foot and ankle prosthesis.

What’s new in the emPOWER Ankle vs. the iWalk BiOM?

  • Improved battery life, delivering up to 2x longer run time
  • Enhanced power delivery that improves the feel of walking and can reduce fatigue.
  • New, compact design that is 25% smaller than the previous BiOM prosthetic ankle
  • More scratch and water resistance

The emPOWER Ankle is appropriate for unilateral and bilateral above-knee (transfemoral) and below-knee (transtibial) amputees. A number of insurance providers offer coverage for the emPOWER Ankle, call us to see if you’re eligible through your insurance.

Leaders in Powered Prosthetics

Due to MCOP’s years of collaboration with BionX and our contributions to the development of the product, Medical Center Orthotics and Prosthetics has been selected a leader for this exciting new technology. We were the first prosthetic company in the country to fit the emPOWER ankle technology. This means that we are one of the only prosthetic clinics in the world with access to and training on the emPOWER ankle.
