Ability Dynamics, LLC a developer of next-generation prosthetic devices announces the release of the RUSH Foot H2O collection.
“The H2O feet are an exciting new addition to our ever-growing collection of RUSH feet.”, says Steve Sherman, VP of Sales. Sherman continues, “The H2O RUSH feet is perfect for someone seeking a foot that will provide extra confidence and traction on slick surfaces… like showering or water activities. The best part, no foot shell is required!”
Available in the tried-and-true RUSH Foot® HiPro, LoPro and ROGUE models and featuring an integrated Vibram® sole and custom molded rubber toe wrap. The RUSH Foot H2O collection of feet offer the same great durability and comfort of all the other RUSH feet, but now adds superior traction on slick surfaces.
From the shower to the pool, you won’t find a foot that provides this amount of grip and added confidence on slippery surfaces.
RULE OF THUMB — The RUSH Foot H2O is the ideal foot for all barefoot activities. Aggressive terrain activities require the use of a standard RUSH Foot® and foot shell.
