Comparative effectiveness of microprocessor and energy storing prosthetic ankles: Patient reported outcome measures

Abstract: Microprocessor prosthetic ankle-feet (MPA) are commercially available, but access is limited due to insurance coverage. The type of comparative effectiveness research performed in this study has the potential to inform treatment decisions around MPA technology.

A clinical algorithm for the selection of non-microprocessor controlled prosthetic knees.

Abstract: This paper aims to provide guidance to clinicians for the selection of the most appropriate non-microprocessor controlled knee mechanism for an individual patient based on technical and biomechanical functions of the knee mechanism and physical capabilities of the patient.

Benefits of a microprocessor-enhanced hydraulic knee to unlimited community ambulators with a unilatleral transfemoral amputation

Abstract: This study with a new hydraulic knee enhanced with a microprocessor-controlled gait phase switch demonstrated significantly improved safety while providing the same functionality as advanced non-microprocessor controlled knees.

Effect of the variations of transfemoral socket alignment to attained optimum gait

Abstract: The aim of our study was to investigate effect of the variations of trans-femoral socket alignment on trans-femoral prostheses. The study shows that alignment changes may have effects on the socket reaction moments. A larger scale study is vital to prove effects of variations of TF socket alignment

Centre of pressure as robust indicator of compensatory movements during daily activities

Abstract: The Centre of Pressure (CoP) and the Arm Profile Score are useful parameters in motion evaluation. The aim is to figure out if compensatory movements of prosthesis users may also be detected by force plates in specific daily tasks. Depending on tasks, CoP is an indicator of compensatory movements.

Impact of applying different braking control strategies on ground reaction forces for ramp descent using a transfemoral integrated prosthesis

Abstract: The influence of different braking algorithms on ramp descent for transfemoral amputees was investigated using an integrated limb to allow remote control. The residual propulsive force was reduced and subjective safety increased for limb brake indicating an improvement of ambulation.

Assessment of gender inequality in prosthetics and orthotics training services offered at Tanzania Training Centre for Orthopaedic Technologist (TATCOT)

Abstract: SUMMARY Background: Globally, gender inequality is a major problem facing Prosthetic and Orthotics services. In Tanzania this has been a huge problem as the prevalence of gender inequality towards the choice of this programme. Different articles and research reports shows that the issue of inequali

Functional and biomechanical assessments of a new energy storage and return foot; a preliminary study aimed at distinguishing relevant parameters

Abstract: Regarding the lack of standardization in prostheses’ evaluation protocols, this study aims at collecting both functional and biomechanical parameters in 5 unilateral transtibial amputees, wearing the new Dynatrek foot (PROTEOR) in comparison with their usual energy storage and return foot.
