Title (EN) PROSTHETIC KNEE AND LEG ASSEMBLY FOR USE IN ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES IN WHICH THE QUADRICEPS ARE NORMALLY USED FOR SUPPORT AND DYNAMIC FUNCTION
(FR) PROTHESE DE GENOU ET ENSEMBLE DE JAMBE A UTILISER DANS DES ACTIVITES D'ATHLETISME DANS LESQUELLES LES QUADRICEPS INTERVIENNENT GENERALEMENT POUR REALISER LA FONCTION DE SUPPORT ET LA FONCTION DYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a new prosthetic knee and lower leg device that enables an above-the-knee amputee to participate in demanding athletic activities in which the quadricep muscles are used extensively for support and dynamic function. The prosthetic device includes a thigh/knee plate that is coupled to a shin frame. An adjustable strut is coupled to both the thigh/knee plate and the shin frame. The functional length of the strut can be adjusted, as can be the lower mounting position thereof. The prosthetic device can be adjusted with regard to functional characteristics, performance settings, and 'home position' angles of the knee. The extent of adjustability enables the user to adapt the device for different levels of aggressiveness, different activities and different circumstances, and also allows the device to be adapted to users of different weights and size.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une prothèse de genou et un mécanisme de jambe inférieure qui permet à une personne amputée au-dessus du genou de participer à des activités d'athlétisme exigeantes dans lesquelles les quadriceps sont utilisés de façon extensive pour réaliser la fonction de support et la fonction dynamique. Le mécanisme de prothèse comprend une plaque cuisse/genou qui est couplée à une armature de tibia. Un étai réglable est couplé à la plaque cuisse/genou et à l'armature de tibia. La longueur fonctionnelle de l'étai peut être réglée, tout comme sa position de montage inférieure. Le mécanisme de prothèse peut être réglé en ce qui concerne les propriétés fonctionnelles, les paramètres de performance, et les angles de 'position de base' du genou. L'ampleur de la capacité de réglage permet à l'utilisateur d'adapter le mécanisme à différents niveaux d'agressivité, différentes activités et différentes circonstances, et permet également au mécanisme d'être adapté à des utilisateurs dont le poids et la taille diffèrent.
