Announcing the new and improved Soleus foot, Tactical Edition. It was crafted especially for Dale Beatty, Iraq combat wounded Veteran, bilateral amputee and co-founder of Purple Heart Homes, a national non-profit organization.
Available for sale in limited quantities starting July 4, 2012, College Park will donated $200 of every Soleus Tactical sold to the Purple Heart Homes. This organization is committed to no Veteran left behind and provides personalized housing solutions for service-connected disabled Veterans and their families, no matter the war they fought in. Purple Heart Homes is made up of volunteers and professionals from all over the country who share a passion to give back to those who have given so much for their country.
The Soleus Tactical is engineered and manufactured right here in the U.S.A. and custom built for the heroes among us, whether they are on the front line or the home front. A truly redesigned and improved foot, the structure of the Soleus foot was optimized for strength to weight ratio based on extensive machine and real world testing. As a result, College Park was able to remove unnecessary weight while retaining superior strength. Coring out the aluminum housing and redesigning the front and back brought about additional removal and redistribution of mass. A new heel spring design created higher cyclic durability and a new mid spring design brought higher ultimate strength. All this combined with a new belt attachment system for higher tensile strength created a foot 40% stronger and 10% lighter.
“Purple Heart Homes is honored to partner with College Park on this exciting new foot. I personally have been wearing the Soleus feet since they were first released in 2009 and I love the new improved Soleus Tactical.” said Dale Beatty. “By pledging a monetary donation for every foot sold, College Park is showing their dedication not only to providing quality prosthetic products but also demonstrates a real commitment to amputees like me and other service-connected disabled Veterans that wear them,” Beatty added.
