What kind of stump is more suitable for prosthesis assembly?
In the process of installing prostheses with different prices, the tolerance of amputees to the receiving cavity is very different, and good conditions of stumps are the premise. So what kind of stump is more suitable to install the prosthesis?
1. First of all, the overall condition of the residual limb skin should not be too bad, to ensure that there is no ulcer, no large area of skin grafting, etc. The shape should also meet the installation conditions. The shape of the upper or lower knee stump is inverted cone, and the skeleton has no large bending deformation.
2. Secondly, in order to ensure the effective length of the limb, the end of the stump should have a reasonable soft tissue as a pad. The end of the skeleton of the stump can be moderately trimmed, for example, the fibula of the amputee under the knee is shorter than the tibia, so as to avoid excessive pulling force on the skin.
3. In addition, bone repair and good muscle fixation are the basis for surgery. In addition, as early as possible, patients receive progressive rehabilitation therapy, which is an important way to achieve limb shaping and skin adaptation, and helps to lay a foundation for self-care and work in the future.
After amputation, especially the friends who amputate the lower limbs, in order to reduce the impact on life, they will either choose a wheelchair or wear the prosthesis. So how to choose the right price for the latter? First of all, amputees should understand that the higher the product price is, the more suitable it is for them. In addition, decorative prostheses and functional prostheses have different emphases and materials, resulting in different prices. In order to carry out better actions in the later stage, we should communicate with professional personnel in advance so as to understand the main composition and material cost of some products of this type
It is generally believed that the quality of the prosthesis installation is the standard for disabled friends to choose the prosthesis factory. In fact, when you have a very consistent prosthesis, you can use it reasonably for a long time, which is closely related to your disabled friend. This is like a high-performance fighter. Only when it is driven by a highly skilled pilot can its performance be exerted. Otherwise, its high-performance will be buried. When starting to use the prosthesis, the disabled friends should be patient, persistent, not afraid of hardship, and use proper methods to make the prosthesis a part of their own body. The shape should also meet the installation conditions. The shape of the upper or lower knee stump is inverted cone, and the skeleton has no large bending deformation. There is a process for any prosthetic user to achieve natural gait and use freely: training mastery proficiency. When the disabled friends come to the artificial limb factory for the first time and see many artificial hands, legs or even the whole artificial legs, they will be shocked and have a sense of fear. Some disabled young women will cry when they see this scene and think of their own disabled limbs. This will produce certain psychological obstacles for the use of artificial limbs in the future. Only by gradually adapting, can we gradually eliminate the tension.
