Inspired by mountain goats’ exceptional climbing ability, KLIPPA is a prosthetic leg designed for amputee rock climbers. It features a small shoe that is about half the size of an average human foot. Climber can apply the pointy toe to wedge their foot and perform heel strike with the textured heel. Under pressure, the hoof like sole contracts and pushes outward, separating the two parts with deep grooves to help climbers save energy. In addition,The interchangeable shoe and shin guard are made of hard rubber that adds traction. Lastly KLIPPA comes with an elastic, pivoted joint that provides proper ankle articulation.
