Title (EN) CONFIGURABLE ORTHOSIS AND METHOD OF DEFINITIVE ORTHOTIC DESIGN, FABRICATION AND VALIDATION
(FR) ORTHOSE CONFIGURABLE ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONCEPTION, DE FABRICATION ET DE VALIDATION ORTHOTIQUES DÉFINITIVES
Abstract:
(EN) Configurable orthoses having a high degree of independent adjustability of various parameters are provided. In the example of a rehabilitation-evaluation ankle- foot orthosis (REAFO), these parameters may include calf band anteroposterior, height, width, sagittal tilt, coronal tilt, and mediolateral displacement adjustments; mediolateral displacement adjustments of a supramalleolar support; heel width / stirrup separation adjustment; and sagittal active joint resistance and neutral angle adjustments. Calf band mediolateral displacement adjustment may be provided by a lockabie four-bar pivoting frame linkage of the REAFO. In one aspect, the configurable orthosis is used in conjunction with a plastically deformable precursor member to facilitate the design and manufacture of a definitive orthosis customized for a particular patient. In another aspect, the orthosis communicatively transmits limb shape data to either a positive shape receiver apparatus or a CAD/CAM apparatus, to facilitate design and manufacture of a definitive orthosis.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des orthoses configurables présentant un degré élevé de réglage indépendant de divers paramètres. Dans l'exemple de réhabilitation-évaluation d’orthose de cheville du pied (REAFO), ces paramètres peuvent comprendre une bande de mollet antéropostérieur, une hauteur, une largeur, une inclinaison sagittale, une inclinaison coronaire, et des ajustements de déplacement médiolatéraux ; les ajustements de déplacement médiolatéraux d’un support supramalléolaire ; l’ajustement de la largeur du talon/séparation de l’étrier ; et les ajustements de la résistance de l’articulation sagittale active et d’angle neutre. L’ajustement du déplacement médiolatéral de la bande de mollet peut être fourni par une liaison de cadre pivotant à quatre barres verrouillables de la REAFO. Dans un aspect, l’orthose configurable est utilisée en conjonction avec un élément précurseur déformable de manière plastique pour faciliter la conception et la fabrication d’une orthose définitive personnalisée pour un patient particulier. Dans un autre aspect, l’orthose transmet par communication des données sur la forme des membres soit à un appareil de réception de forme positive soit à un appareil CAD/CAM, pour faciliter la conception et la fabrication d’une orthose définitive.
