RUSH EVAQ8 Collection
The RUSH EVAQ8 Collection presents an elevated vacuum system which seamlessly integrates into the heel shock of the RUSH foot, no matter which model you choose. Available as HiPro, LoPro or Rogue, there are no additional build height requirements, preventing any clearance issues for your patient.
As the user loads weight onto the foot, the heel shock compresses, forcing air out through EVAQ8’s one-way exhaust port. Unloading this weight decompresses the heel shock, and air is pulled in from the socket to fill the space. This means that your patient can achieve optimum socket vacuum in just a few short steps.
