Yayyyyyyyy, I got my PerfectStride II X3 foot today and so far I love it. I thought the energy return on my Veri-Flex foot by Ossur was good but the return on the new foot is awesome. I was able to go up and down a staircase much easier than before. Walking on uneven ground was a snap. I haven't tried inclines and declines yet but I don't expect any problems with that aspect. When I started walking on the new foot in my prosthetists office it felt a bit strange, but a good strange. For the first time since my RBKA I actually had ankle movement when I walk. What a novel idea, an ankle that moves when you do. My prosthetist had warned me when I first requested the PerfectStride II X3 that it was a heavier foot. It may be heavier but it isn't very noticeable and it is worth every ounce of weight. I LOVE THIS FOOT!!!!
