Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DETECTING A PARTIAL LESION OF THE ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT OF THE KNEE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE DETECTION D'UNE LESION PARTIELLE DE LIGAMENT CROISE ANTERIEUR DU GENOU
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to an apparatus and measurement method for detecting a lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee of a patient. Said apparatus includes a seat portion (20), a plate (23) for supporting the leg, said plate being rotatable relative to the seat, a member (28) for pushing against the calf of the patient, and a sensor (30) for detecting the movement of the antero-superior surface of the tibia on the basis of the push against the calf. A foot support (34) is provided so as to be freely movable within the three degrees of rotational freedom (36, 37, 38), the plate for supporting the leg being translatably movable relative to the seat portion. The apparatus comprises recording means (40) and computing means (42) arranged so as to measure the differential between curves obtained for the legs of the patient, said differential giving the movement of the sensor according to the pushing force, at various angles of the leg support relative to the seat portion, and in order to deduce the presence of a partial lesion of the AM and/or PL ligament therefrom.
(FR)
Il s'agit d'un appareil et d'une méthode de mesure pour détection d'une lésion du ligament croisé antérieur du genou d'un patient. Il comprend une assise (20), un plateau (23) de support de la jambe, mobile en rotation par rapport à l'assise, un organe (28) de poussée du mollet du patient et un capteur (30) de détection de déplacement de la face antéro-supérieure du tibia, en fonction de la poussée sur le mollet. Un support (34) du pied est prévu librement mobile dans les trois degrés de liberté en rotation (36, 37, 38), le plateau support de la jambe étant mobile en translation par rapport à l'assise. L'appareil comporte des moyens (40) d'enregistrement, et des moyens (42) de calcul agencés pour mesurer le différentiel entre courbes obtenues pour les jambes du patient donnant le déplacement du capteur en fonction de la force de poussée, dans des inclinaisons différentes du support par rapport à l'assise et pour en déduire la lésion partielle du ligament AM et/ou du ligament PL.
