Title (EN) DEVICES FOR PASSIVE MOTION OF JOINTS UNDER TRACTION
(FR) DISPOSITIFS GENERANT UN MOUVEMENT PASSIF DES ARTICULATIONS SOUS L'EFFET D'UNE TRACTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device (10) for generating passive motion of a joint while applying traction, includes a proximal bracket (12) for engaging at least one pin inserted into a bone proximal to the joint, and a distal bracket (16) for engaging at least one pin inserted into a bone distal to the joint. The device (10) also includes a tension hinge mechanism connecting between the proximal, and distal brackets (12, 16). The tension hinge mechanism (20, 22) includes a hinge (20) for permitting rotational movement of the distal bracket (16) relative to the proximal bracket (12) about a hinge axis. At least one of the proximal bracket (12), and the distal bracket (16) is implemented as a movable bracket sliding mounted so as to be displaceable in a direction generally perpendicular to the hinge axis. The tension hinge mechanism (20, 22) also includes a traction mechanism (22) for applying roughly constant force over a predefined range of positions of the movable bracket so as to apply tension across the joint. Also provided are jigs (120), for use during insertion of pins around joints for orthopedic devices.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (10) permettant d'impartir un mouvement passif à une articulation soumise à traction et comprenant un support proximal (12) destiné à s'imbriquer dans au moins un tenon introduit dans un os proximal à l'articulation et un support distal (16) destiné à recevoir au moins un tenons introduit dans un os distal à l'articulation. Le dispositif (10) comprend également un mécanisme à charnière de mise en tension venant entre les supports proximal et distal (12, 16). Ce mécanisme (20, 22) comprend une charnière (20) permettant de faire tourner le support distal (16) par rapport au support proximal (12) autour d'un axe de charnière. Au moins un des supports (12, 16) est mobile et monté de manière à coulisser afin de pouvoir se déplacer dans un sens généralement perpendiculaire à l'axe de charnière. Le mécanisme à charnière de mise en tension (20, 22) comprend en outre un mécanisme de traction (22) permettant d'exercer une force plus ou moins constante sur une plage prédéfinie de positions du support mobile de manière à mettre l'articulation en tension. Font aussi l'objet de cette invention des gabarits (120) utilisés pendant la mise en place de tenons autour des articulations dans le cas d'appareils orthopédiques.
