Is any jumping using the OttoBock Harmony System? How's it working out?

Scott, Not sure what that is but I have been skydiving for 30+ years & I have a BK with many diferent types of leg. I settled on a peg leg many years ago.

I have a passive vacume system that does fine. I have augmented it with a stirrup to be sure the leg lands with me. I would be concern about the harmony system because of the weight. The harmony system only helps the leg suspension with when it is being activated by walking on it. Soooo, in free fall, the system is no great help. If it's the most recent version, it's not as heavy, so it wouldn't hurt I guess.
