Title (EN) VACUUM PUMP SYSTEMS FOR PROSTHETIC LIMBS AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE POMPE À VIDE POUR MEMBRES PROSTHÉTIQUES ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION DE CEUX-CI
Abstract:
(EN) Pump systems for use in suspension of a prosthetic device from a residual limb and methods of suspending a prosthetic device from a residual limb are disclosed. The pump systems include a mechanically activated pump having a first compression member coupled to a second compression member, a diaphragm disposed between the first and second compression members, and coupling elements that engage and couple together the first and second compression members. The mechanically activated pump may be connected with an electrically activated pump, forming a hybrid pump system to provide vacuum engagement between a prosthetic device and a residual limb.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes de pompe destinés à être utilisés pour la suspension d’un dispositif prosthétique à un membre résiduel, et des procédés pour la suspension d’un dispositif prosthétique à un membre résiduel. Les systèmes de pompe comprennent une pompe activée de façon mécanique ayant un premier élément de compression couplé à un deuxième élément de compression, un diaphragme disposé entre les premier et deuxième éléments de compression, et des éléments de couplage qui mettent en prise et couplent mutuellement les premier et deuxième éléments de compression. La pompe activée de façon mécanique peut être raccordée à une pompe activée de façon électrique de manière à former un système de pompe hybride pour permettre la prise sous vide entre un dispositif prosthétique et un membre résiduel.
