Title (EN) ORTHOPEDIC LEG ALIGNMENT SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'ALIGNEMENT DE JAMBE ORTHOPÉDIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An orthopedic measurement system is disclosed to measure leg alignment. The measurement system includes a tri-axial gyroscope configured to measure movement of a leg. The gyroscope is coupled to a tibia of the leg. For example, the gyroscope can be placed in an insert or tibial prosthetic component that couples to the tibia. The gyroscope is used to measure alignment relative to the mechanical axis of the leg. The leg alignment measurement is performed by putting the leg through a first leg movement and a second leg movement. The gyroscope outputs angular velocities on the axes the sensor is rotated about. The gyroscope is coupled to a computer that calculates the alignment of the leg relative to the mechanical axis from the gyroscope measurement data.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de mesure orthopédique permettant de mesurer l'alignement d'une jambe. Le système de mesure comprend un gyroscope triaxial conçu pour mesurer le mouvement d'une jambe. Le gyroscope est accouplé au tibia de la jambe. Par exemple, le gyroscope peut être placé dans un insert ou un élément prothétique tibial qui s'accouple au tibia. Le gyroscope est utilisé pour mesurer l'alignement par rapport à l'axe mécanique de la jambe. La mesure d'alignement de jambe est effectuée en plaçant le pied par un premier mouvement de jambe et un second mouvement de jambe. Le gyroscope émet des vitesses angulaires sur les axes autour desquels tourne le capteur. Le gyroscope est accouplé à un ordinateur qui calcule l'alignement de la jambe par rapport à l'axe mécanique à partir des données de mesure de gyroscope.
