Title
(DE) AKTIVE HANDORTHESE
(EN) ACTIVE HAND ORTHOSIS
(FR) ORTHÈSE MANUELLE ACTIVE
Abstract
(EN) Active hand orthosis (20) for people with nerve-related paresis/paralysis of the hand, and for people with spastic paresis/paralysis of the hand, which comprises supporting elements (30) and moving elements (40) connecting the supporting elements (30), the moving elements (40) containing shape memory material, further comprising a control system (22), electric circuit elements (50) and a power source (60) for creating an activation signal inducing transformation of the shape memory material, and thereby deformation of the moving elements (40), characterised by that the moving elements (40) comprise: a wrist joint moving element (44), at least one finger moving element (46), and a thumb moving element (48), furthermore, in a state fitted to a lower arm (10) the supporting elements (30) comprise: a lower arm splint (32) supporting a lower side of the lower arm (10), and leaving a wrist joint (11) free, a palm support (34) connected to the lower arm splint (32) by the wrist joint moving element (44), palm support (34) being provided at the proximal end of the fingers (15) opposable to the thumb (14), at least one finger support (36) connected to the palm support (34) by the at least one finger moving element (46), at least one finger support (36) being provided at the middle bone of the fingers (15) opposable to the thumb (14), and a thumb support (38) connected to the lower arm splint (32) by the thumb moving element (48), the thumb support (38) extending from the proximal end of the thumb (14) on the palm (13) to the lower bone of the thumb (14).
(FR) L'invention concerne une orthèse manuelle active (20) pour des personnes ayant une parésie/paralysie liée au nerf de la main, et pour des personnes ayant une parésie/paralysie spastique de la main, qui comprend des éléments de support (30) et des éléments mobiles (40) reliant les éléments de support (30), les éléments mobiles (40) contenant un matériau à mémoire de forme, comprenant en outre un système de commande (22), des éléments de circuit électrique (50) et une source d'alimentation (60) pour créer un signal d'activation induisant une transformation du matériau à mémoire de forme, et ainsi déformer les éléments mobiles (40). Les éléments mobiles (40) comprennent : un élément mobile d'articulation de poignet (44), au moins un élément mobile de doigt (46), et un élément mobile de pouce (48), en outre, dans un état monté sur un bras inférieur (10) les éléments de support (30) comprennent : une attelle de bras inférieur (32) supportant un côté inférieur du bras inférieur (10), et laissant un joint de poignet (11) libre, un support de paume (34) relié à l'attelle de bras inférieur (32) par l'élément mobile d'articulation de poignet (44), un support de paume (34) étant prévu à l'extrémité proximale des doigts (15) opposée au pouce (14), au moins un support de doigt (36) relié au support de paume (34) par le ou les éléments mobiles de doigt (46), au moins un support de doigt (36) étant prévu au niveau de l'os médian des doigts (15) opposé au pouce (14), et un support de pouce (38) relié à l'attelle de bras inférieur (32) par l'élément de déplacement de pouce (48), le support de pouce (38) s'étendant de l'extrémité proximale du pouce (14) sur la paume (13) à l'os inférieur du pouce (14).
