It is had to know where to start when discussing the foot. I can do so much more since I have acquired it. Standing still and being able to look up into the sky, especially at night was a very difficult task before I had the Rush™ foot. That sounds like such a simple thing, but I had trouble balancing. I would usually touch something to give me a reference point besides my "meat leg'. Even lightly touching another person's shoulder would let me keep my balance. With the Rush™ foot, I have the confidence to let go when I look up. The power return in the foot (toe) allows me to actually feel the amount of deviation from center, in a comfortable way that is much like what I get from my other leg. I know it is hard to explain, but if you are an amputee, you probably know what I mean.

I guess that the bottom line is: I feel that the Rush™ 87 is a fantastic product, and I promise, I will get some photos of some of the great places I plan on going with it soon. If you are a prosthesitist, I suggest that you use this foot as your 'go-to' foot for new amputees. It is easier to walk on, will take the new user into a place that they can trust their leg faster and with fewer problems. Just like their tag line says [It's] "Not Just Another Carbon Copy®"
