Abstract

A prosthetic or orthotic device comprises an upper leg portion (505), a lower leg portion (510), a foot portion (520), a knee joint (515) and an ankle joint (525). The device further comprises an elastic element (550), which elastically interconnects the upper leg portion and the foot portion. The elastic element is movably (1105, 1105a, 1105b) connected to the foot portion and/or movably connected to the upper leg portion. During performing a gait cycle with the device, the elastic element actually moves according to said movability or movabilities. At least during a swing phase of said gait cycle, the elastic element absorbs energy.
