Abstract
(EN)
A prosthesis (1) or an orthosis and method of operating the same. The prosthesis or orthosis comprising a moveable component (2), a motor (7) operable to move the component, wherein the motor has at least one operating parameter, the application of which to the motor results in the component having at least one operating condition; and an electronic device (28) operable to: determine at least one operating parameter of the motor and determine at least one instantaneous operating condition of the component from a predetermined operating profile of the motor and component and the determined at least one operating parameter of the motor, the predetermined operating profile of the motor and component being based on one or more operating parameter inputs to the motor and one or more resulting operating condition outputs of the component.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une prothèse (1) ou une orthèse et un procédé d'utilisation associé. La prothèse ou l'orthèse comprend un composant amovible (2), un moteur (7) pouvant fonctionner pour déplacer le composant, le moteur ayant au moins un paramètre de fonctionnement, dont l'application au moteur résulte en ce que le composant a au moins une condition de fonctionnement ; et un dispositif électronique (28) pouvant fonctionner pour : déterminer au moins un paramètre de fonctionnement du moteur et déterminer au moins une condition de fonctionnement instantanée du composant à partir d'un profil de fonctionnement prédéterminé du moteur et du composant et du ou des paramètres de fonctionnement déterminés du moteur, le profil de fonctionnement prédéterminé du moteur et le composant étant basés sur une ou plusieurs entrées de paramètres de fonctionnement dans le moteur et une ou plusieurs sorties de conditions de fonctionnement résultantes du composant.
