The Spanish company Tequir is introducing the femoral implant Keep Walking® at the International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) World Congress in Lyon. Keep Walking® is a single solution that brings the benefits of distal support to all transfemoral amputees.

In addition to introducing the results of the multicenter clinical trial conducted in Spain, Tequir has announced the development of a study with the implant Keep Walking® on a minimum of 100 patients who are going to be amputated for vascular reasons. Five hospitals from Spain, France, Germany and other European countries are being considered to participate in the trial.

For the first time, the trial will be comparative, prospective and randomized, with two groups of first-intention patients (patients who haven't been amputated yet): one of the groups with amputation and Keep Walking implant and another group with amputation and without any implants.

The Keep Walking Femoral Implant is the solution for patients with a lower extremity amputation at femoral level. Keep Walking helps to improve the ambulation capacity, it augments proprioception and user’s comfort while wearing the prosthesis, and reduces problems that all too often are caused by the continuous use of a prosthesis with a femoral socket. It specially helps to reduce demineralization of the femoral bone (caused by changes in the distribution of charges) and alleviates the ischium support. These improvements are thanks to the distal support provided by the Keep Walking implant.

The KeepWalking implant is CE-mark approved for clinical use.

The ADVANCED device is under development.
