Murr-Ma is a amphibious prosthetic inspired by the dorsal fin of the sale fish. While running along the beach and swimming, it allows fast transition between the two. Once in the water, the fins located at the top of the prosthesis channel the water flow alongside the carbon fibre backbone and out at the sides, providing the wearer with the necessary thrust to move through the surf. The amphibious below knee prosthesis has the unique ability to allow an easy transition from the sandy beach into the waves.


The profile of the split toe-toe foot guarantees minimum water resistance, while the multi-layer carbon fibre spine provides stability when walking but allows for flexibility in water. Murr-ma has an unibody design, deliberately waiving of mechanical components, resulting in a durable and reliable appliance. On land the lightweight construction allows for easy walking and running with the split toe assisting balance on uneven surfaces and the curved ankle providing ideal energy flex. The studs provide a larger surface area for increased grip on soft sand. Although designed for high performance water sports and beach activities, it is also suitable for daily use away from the beach.
