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.

The Keep Walking Femoral Implant is composed of a titanium stem with a rough surface for osteointegration with the bone, and a polyethylene spacer that is unified with the stem by means of a plug-screw assembly. This spacer supports the femur’s distal end and is covered with the stump’s soft tissue and permits the return of charge transmissions through the femur.
