Ohio Willow Wood's Shock Absorber reduces or eliminates impact on a prosthesis at heel strike. This component is ideal for prostheses that include non-energy-storing feet.

Rather than an instantaneous impact to the body at heel strike, the Shock Absorber provides a cushion that spreads out the impact at heel strike. The result is a more natural, comfortable gait.

The Shock Absorber has a standard pyramid receiver on one end. The opposite end is compatible with 30mm tube clamps. The aluminum tube has a minimum length of 155mm. It comes with three high-performance polyurethane rod inserts for adjusting stiffness.
