Title (EN) PROSTHETIC SOCKET RETENTION SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE MAINTIEN D’UNE CAVITÉ ARTICULAIRE PROSTHÉTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A friction-based prosthetic retention system includes a prosthetic socket and a plurality of hydraulic actuators attached to an interior surface of the prosthetic socket. A socket liner is positioned over the plurality of hydraulic actuators and includes a plurality of friction elements. A limb liner is placed over a residual limb to be secured within the prosthetic socket. The limb liner includes a plurality of friction pad projections arranged to engage with the plurality of friction elements on the socket liner. A controller is attached to the prosthetic socket and is fluidly coupled to the plurality of hydraulic actuators. The controller is configured to control the plurality of hydraulic actuators to apply pressure to the socket liner to engage the plurality of friction elements of the socket liner with the friction pad projections of the limb liner to retain the prosthetic socket.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de maintien de prothèse à friction comprenant une cavité articulaire prosthétique et une pluralité d’actionneurs hydrauliques fixés à une surface intérieure de la cavité articulaire prosthétique. Un revêtement de cavité articulaire est positionné sur la pluralité des actionneurs hydrauliques et comprend une pluralité d’éléments à friction. Une gaine de membre est placée sur un moignon pour être solidement fixée à l’intérieur de la cavité articulaire prosthétique. La gaine de membre comprend une pluralité de projections à tampon de friction disposées pour se trouver en prise avec la pluralité des éléments à friction sur le revêtement de cavité articulaire. Un dispositif de commande est fixé à la cavité articulaire prosthétique et est couplé de manière fluidique à la pluralité des actionneurs hydrauliques. Le dispositif de commande est configuré pour commander la pluralité des actionneurs hydrauliques afin d’appliquer une pression au revêtement de cavité articulaire pour engager la pluralité des éléments à friction du revêtement de cavité articulaire avec les projections du tampon de friction du revêtement de membre pour maintenir la cavité articulaire prosthétique.
