Prosthetic-Orthopaedic Product Development

 

One of the main activities of the company that provides the future is a research. Current market supply of the modern prosthetic appliances is the key to systematic development and financial health of the organization.

The main goal for scientists and engineers that are involved in this field is to bring artificial upper and lower limbs as close as possible to the living arm/leg.

The most growing and advanced direction of the research at the moment is Orthobiologics. Which is achieved from the compound robotic devices and studies of the nerve cells.

The research in this direction will bring the development to a more advanced level to enable control artificial limbs with the brain which helps to bring functionality of the prosthetic to maximum precision capabilities of the natural limb.

According to statistics, most people are in need of lower limb prosthetics. Nowadays the lower limb prosthetics became quite complex and have been present on the market for quite some time but this does not make them really available from the cost point of view. Models include built in microprocessors which allow to be programmed for a maximum natural walking and other movements.

The most promising creation of the knee module is using a hydraulic drive with electric motors, controlled by a microprocessor with the appropriate software. Addition of the built in sensors allows the prosthetic to change in the motion and make adjustments to their work.

Creating this type of knee certainly has good prospects for its wide application in prosthetics.

There are two principle types of the prosthetic hands: mechanical and bioelectrical. Mechanical prosthesis have been around for centuries and limit their functionality. Therefore, the further development that was due is bioelectrical prosthesis. Such mechanisms read the current produced by muscles during their contraction. These data is then transmitted to a microprocessor which commands the actuator motor by the prosthesis in place.

The bionic prosthetic arm is the best achievement to date. It rotates 360 degrees, rotates the brush, feel the touch, to distinguish the structure of the surface and even the temperature of the object. At the heart of the development – a neural interface that provides greater control compared to the use of sensors in a more affordable myoelectric prostheses.
