Mike Schultz won the 2013 Popular Science Invention award for the creation of a prosthetic foot called Versa Foot. The Versa Foot is a customizable performance sport prosthetic made for above and below knee amputees

Schultz won multiple X Games Medals wearing the prosthetic he built himself. The Versa Foot allows amputees to compete on an even level with non-amputees on things like snowmobiles and motorcycles. Schultz used FOX motorcycle parts to create the Versa Foot and the product is one of the most customizable prosthetics out there. It includes adjustable shock absorbers, interchangeable sole plates and four different ankle configurations. The Versa Foot is made to stand up to extreme sports and weather conditions.
