Energy-Harvesting Mesofluidic Impulse Prosthesis: e-MIP

2019-11-11 17:49:19 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this research is to validate the e-MIP design and function by testing the ability of e-MIP to harvest energy and return a sufficient amount of energy to assist the user during gait. The investigators will also evaluate whether prosthetic users are able to wear and use the e-MIP device long-term.

Self-aligning prosthetic device for older patients with vascular-related amputations: protocol for a randomised feasibility study (the STEPFORWARD study).

The majority of older patients with a transtibial amputation are prescribed a standard (more rigid, not self-aligning) prosthesis. These are mostly suitable for level walking, and cannot adjust to dif...

How do transtibial residual limbs adjust to intermittent incremental socket volume changes?

Strategies to maintain prosthesis users' daily limb volume are needed.

Rehabilitation of infants after transtibial amputation due to thrombosis in the perinatal period. Case report.

Congenital thrombosis and amputation in infancy is not common. Therefore, the existing literature lacks sufficient evidence regarding this subject. Available research primarily focuses on treatment an...

Comparing thermal discomfort with skin temperature response of lower-limb prosthesis users during exercise.

Thermal discomfort is prevalent among prosthesis users. This observational study of thirty unilateral lower-limb prosthesis users compared their skin temperatures and the thermal discomfort experience...

Fifteen-year survival of the Cedior™ total knee prosthesis.

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an effective treatment for advanced osteoarthritis of the knee. No large and long-term follow-up study has been done about Cedior prosthesis. The study hypothesis was ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A prosthetic appliance for the replacement of areas of the maxilla, mandible, and face, missing as a result of deformity, disease, injury, or surgery. When the prosthesis replaces portions of the mandible only, it is referred to as MANDIBULAR PROSTHESIS.

The plan and delineation of prostheses in general or a specific prosthesis.

Surgical insertion of a prosthesis.

Holding a PROSTHESIS in place.

The selected form given to a natural tooth when it is reduced by instrumentation to receive a prosthesis (e.g., artificial crown or a retainer for a fixed or removable prosthesis). The selection of the form is guided by clinical circumstances and physical properties of the materials that make up the prosthesis. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p239)
