Lecture Scientific/Practical

Monitoring everyday use of lower limb orthotics and quality of life in subjects with neuromuscular gait disorders

Abstract: The use of single and modular orthotic concepts is monitored via temperature logging sensors over a three month period. Results reveal diverse influencing factors like walking speed, adaptability and handling, regarding orthotic use, quality of life and satisfaction with orthotics.

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Performance, patient benefits and acceptance of a new generation of microprocessor-controlled stance and swing control orthosis

Abstract: We show that patients suffering from lower limb paresis benefit from C-Brace, a stance and swing control orthosis (SSCO), compared to conventional KAFOs. Specifically performance and patient benefits from next generation of C-Brace will be assessed with gait analysis and questionnaires.

Lecture Case Study

Increasing compliance by monitoring brace wearing time by Iidiopathic scoliosis patients

Abstract: Neben optimaler Korsettanpassung und Primärkorrektur spielt die Tragezeit eine elementare Rolle. Waren bislang Aussagen von Patienten und Angehörigen entscheidend ermöglicht uns das Tragezeitmonitoring die Compliance gesichert zu prüfen oder Entscheidungen wie die OP-Indikation zu begründen.
