Ever since I've been wearing this RUSH™ foot, everything's there,"
says Levi Kane, an above-knee amputee. "The mid-stance, the slow walking, the fast walking, running, jogging... whatever you want, it's there. I haven't found a flaw yet." As a restaurant employee on his feet for 13-hour shifts and an exercise enthusiast to boot, Kane prefers his RUSH™ foot to maintain his physically demanding lifestyle. "RUSH™ foot by Ability Dynamics is going to change your life. It's amazing. You're going to be able to do anything. The sky's the limit, really!"
After a traumatic motorcycle accident, Levi Kane faced the uncertainty of life as an above-knee amputee and the unknown obstacles that accompany such an event. Kane is a young man who thrives on testing the limits of his physical capabilities at work or at play. Levi is employed at a demanding restaurant service job, often working double shifts.
Kane's confidence in resuming his incredibly active lifestyle soared once he adopted the AK Rocker version. With the soft heel, he plants his foot at initial contact and enjoys a loading response that is both comfortable and secure. Kane remarks that the heel strike and ankle motion is the most natural he has felt since his accident. The shape of his sole plate eliminates any possibility for a flat spot, and provides him with the smoothest and most comfortable step he has ever experienced in a prosthetic foot.
For someone like Levi , an ordinary prosthetic foot will not suit the high-level activity of his life. That's why he chooses RUSH™ foot by Ability Dynamics.
Always operating at a minimum functional level of K3, Kane's happiness and quality of life depends on his ability to ramp up his impact and activity level to K4 as often as he can, without the need to change feet or his prosthesis. In his fast-paced job, Kane can't be slowed down by unnecessary energy expenditure or fatigue.
Recently, Kane relocated to Chicago and says the city's inclines, curbs, and uneven sidewalks could add a level of complexity to his mobility. However, the flexibility of the AD RUSH™ material, his foot conforms precisely to any surface environment. "I control my foot, rather than my foot controlling me!" Kane says. With the flexibility of his RUSH foot, Levi now has the ability and confidence to overcome any obstacle.
When I work out, I like to have a good warm-up first. A good friend of mine, Dorian Ealy, tought me how to throw a punch and I've been hooked ever since. The RUSH Foot gives me the mobility to do what I love.
