I also used a low profile Variflex for many moons however when I tried the
LP Ceterus I found it much too stiff for my liking. It seemed it had almost
no ankle flex at all.
I also found the heal to be far too soft. It felt like stepping in a hole.
Even after we added all the wedges it was still too soft. We added more
than the recommended wedges and barely got the thing usable.
I walked on it for several weeks, but ultimately decided I didn't want it
due to the softness of the heal.
However, I was extremely impressed with the torsion control cell. I predict
you will also be impressed with this as you're coming from the old Variflex
foot. This was the best thing about this foot. If this foot didn't have so
many other problems, I would still be using it.
As a matter of fact, I think my CP still has my old one sitting on the self,
basically unused. I might be able to get you a discount if you can use a
size 10 right foot.

I would like to hear from anyone who currently uses, or has used, a
prosthetic foot with a variable torque such as the Ossur Ceterus LP
