Self-mobility System Design for Paraplegic Patients

  • Ing. Mauricio Plaza Torres (a1) and Ing. William Aperador (a1)

Abstract

Tumors of the distal and proximal femur are treated by total femur resection. A hip disarticulation sometimes is a result of massive trauma with crush injuries to the lower extremity. This article discusses a system designed for patient rehabilitation with bilateral hip disarticulations. The prosthetics designed allowed a patient to attain natural gait suspended between parallel articulate crutches with the body weight supported between the crutches. The design is patent pending and it could be used in people with a simple ankle sprain, people with partial immobilizations in inferior members, or people with bilateral hip disarticulation. The final design system allows patients with bilateral hip replacement or partial immobilizations to attain mobility in a natural way.
