The prosthesis market has evolved greatly over the past two decades, incorporating a variety of products, materials and innovative techniques restructure the biomechanical function, providing comfort and security to different users of prostheses.
This is explained largely thanks to technological advances and increased information they provide and obtain technical and health professionals. In Spain, the latest indicators on disability, show an upward trend in the number of amputees due to three main factors: Increased enfermedadesvasculares and diabetes, changes in lifestyles, people live longer.
Orthopedics Silvio has a team capable of advising on any type of prostheses for amputees, intelligent prostheses, biomechanical prostheses, myoelectric prostheses and prosthetic devices.
We work with the best brands in the industry, as Ottobock, Orliman Prosthesics and Ossur
Prosthetic lower limb or lower limb prosthesis. In human anatomy, the lower limb or hindlimb is each of the two ends that are attached to the trunk through the pelvis through the hip joint. Their function is to support the weight of the body in the standing position and make travel possible by its powerful muscle contraction.
Within the lower limb there are several areas; each lower member is composed of several main segments:
The pelvic girdle or pelvis. It is a bony ring that is formed by the sacrum in the posterior region and the right and left innominate bones. Both they unite ahead in the symphysis pubis which closes the ring.
Thighs: his skeleton is a single bone; the femur. In this area it would be located Prostheses transfemoral or above the knee
Patella: This is the area between the thigh and leg. There are different types of knee replacement.
Leg: formed by the tibia and fibula or fibula. In this area Prosthetics, or also called transtibial or transtibial prosthesis are located.
Ankle Region where the leg joins the foot.
Pie in turn consists of three segments: tarsus, metatarsus, Falange. Foot Prosthesis.
Upper limb prostheses or upper extremities. The upper member or upper end, in the human body, is becoming one of the ends fixing to the upper trunk. It consists of four segments: shoulder girdle, arm, forearm and hand and is characterized by their mobility and ability to manipulate and hold.
In formal terms, "arm" refers only to the second segment of the upper limb, and should not be understood at least in anatomic-language as all of it.
It consists of the bones of the clavicle and scapula, two on each side, that secure the upper limbs to the top of the trunk -tórax- shoulder level.
Its skeleton is formed by a single bone, the humerus, the longest and voluminous upper limb bone. The arm is formed in its front face by flexors (biceps brachii, and brachialis Coracobrachialis), which will be supplied by the musculocutaneous nerve. While on its rear face the extensor muscle (Triceps brachii), which is innervated by the radial nerve will be found. There are several models of prostheses for amputees arms
It consists of the radius and ulna. It is articulated at its proximal portion with the scapula and its distal portion with Ulna (ulna) and the radius.Anteriorly in the flexor muscles were found, while in the rear portion BE extenders. In total the forearm muscles has 20, of which only 17 will cross the elbow joint. Prosthetic arm.
The hand is attached to the forearm by a joint called wrist (whose bones form the carpal bones) and consists of a central palm (whose bones form the metacarpal) from which emerge five fingers (also called phalanges). In addition, the hand is made up of several, muscles and ligaments that allow for a lot of movement and dexterity. Prosthesis hand.
