Title (EN) SYSTEM, METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROL OF A PROSTHETIC DEVICE
(FR) SYSTÈME, PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DESTINÉS AU CONTRÔLE D'UN DISPOSITIF PROTHÉTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for control of a prosthetic device includes at least one Inertial Measurement Unit (7096) detecting orientation of a user's foot. The at least one Inertial Measurement Unit is in communication with a device module (7017) configured to command at least one actuator (7013) of a prosthetic device. The at least one Inertial Measurement unit sends output signals related to orientation of the user's foot to the device module and the device module controls the at least one actuator of the prosthetic device based on the signals from the at least one Inertial Measurement Unit.
(FR) La présente invention concerne le contrôle d'un dispositif prothétique comprenant au moins une unité de mesure de l'inertie détectant l'orientation du pied d'un utilisateur. La ou les unités de mesure de l'inertie sont en communication avec un module d'appareillage configuré pour commander au moins un actionneur d'un dispositif prothétique. La ou les unités de mesure de l'inertie envoient des signaux de sortie associés à l'orientation du pied de l'utilisateur au module d'appareillage et le module d'appareillage contrôle le ou les actionneurs du dispositif prothétique en fonction des signaux envoyés par la ou les unités de mesure de l'inertie.
