Hip disarticulation prosthesis
Hip disarticulation prostheses are adapted to the body with the help of a pelvic corset. In this corset, there is a hip joint in the lower or anterior part according to the hip joint to be preferred. These joints are produced mechanically to complete the anatomical hip activities and consist of downward modular parts, knee joints, and foot parts. In this prosthetic system, tuberosis ischii bone, the part of the body that feels the least pain in the human body, carries its body weight as it is above the knee.
Helix 3D hip joint
Greater safety, dynamic response and comfort
Ottobock with Helix 3D hip joint system; It has provided a standard for movements after hip joint amputation. This can be applied both to hip disarticulation and to hemipelvectomy amputee where some of the pelvis is removed.
In natural walking, the hip moves in three dimensions. However, we have to adapt this to some balancing movements in the legs and feet. The loss of internal and external rotation after the amputation is integrated into the one-piece joint structure of the Helix 3D hip joint system. Miniature hydraulics in the hip joint reveal the three-dimensional series of movements during stop and swing. Movement series; it is more physiological than uniaxial, back-to-back and non-dynamic systems.
