1E56 Axtion

1E56 Axtion

by Ottobock

The 1E56 Axtion® is the ultimate answer for active amputees who need a lightweight, high-functioning foot.
At just 13 ounces (370 g), the Axtion is the only foot in its class to deliver an extremely low profile (1 and 1/8 inches / 54 mm) with the high performance combination of urethane and carbon.
Above-and-beyond Testing: Otto Bock takes things a step further than ISO standards by loading the foot from heel strike to toe off while performing 2 million cycles. And while ISO standards require using 2 feet, we test 8-10 different feet.


  • The Axtion 1E56 is a compact and lightweight high-performance foot for active amputees. Its low structural height makes it perfect for patients where only limited space is available. New heel wedges make it easy for individual adaptation of heel stiffness. As an all-around talent, the Axtion is ideal for everyday use as well as for recreational sports, and its Heel Adjustment Wedges make it easier to optimize the fitting in one session.

  • The unique combination of flexible carbon springs, elastic polyurethane and adjustable heel stiffness enables the Axtion 1E56 to offer top performance during all phases of gait.

  • The dynamic heel element effectively softens impact at heel strike. Heel stiffness and the resulting knee dynamics can be adapted to the individual patient requirements by using one of two different heel wedges–with no increase in price. This also allows for simple fitting changes if the user gains or loses weight.During roll-over, the particularly long weight-bearing foot length offers just the support needed for a natural gait pattern, and helps eliminate dead spots. The polyurethane layer compensates for slightly uneven surfaces.

  • Excellent forefoot dynamics support the transition to the swing phase by returning the energy stored. The 1E56 Axtion® thus allows controlled toe-off, even at high walking speeds.
