Problems that may occur when walking with a prosthesis


Release Time:

Jul 10,2021

Problems that may occur when walking with a prosthesis When the patient walks with a prosthetic leg, they move hard or push forward. This is usually caused by a change in heel height that may be lower than or above the original heel. The temporary solution is to fill something in the heel or front palm but do not use hard things to damage the feet. Fill is just a temporary adjustment and wearing shoes with the right heel height is the key.   If a sound is found at the joint and the prosthesis, check the fixing screws at the joint for loosening. Under normal circumstances, the contact surface of the fixed screws is too small enough. After a period of use, the contact is not in place, there will be sound at the pipe joint, and the prosthetic leg will produce noise. If the fixing screws are loose, they can be fixed with a special screwdriver, and the noise can’t be heard after repair. When wearing a calf prosthetic, gently massage the stump several times a day, which will help reduce the sensitivity to the residue and increase its stress tolerance.   SHIJIAZHUANG AOSUO O&P
