Minister of Industry and Foreign Trade Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour announced the formation of a permanent technical committee to improve the quality of the prosthetic device
industry and implement related research projects, according to a Tuesday statement by the ministry.
Our article "Unilateral lower-limb loss: Prosthetic device
use and functional outcomes in servicemembers from Vietnam war and OIF/OEF conflicts" addresses prosthetic devices
used at every level of limb loss by participants .
Washington, Dec 23 (ANI): Researchers at Arizona State University have developed a prosthetic device
called SPARKy (Spring Ankle with Regenerative Kinetics), a robotic ankle system which helps amputees get around with a literal spring in their step.
Sensors in the prosthetic device
detect the movement, and direct her robotic hand to close.
s Department of Medicine and of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Saint Louis) plan for this volume to serve patients considering whether to have a prosthetic device
implanted and doctors not involved in with prostheses but still required to provide advice to their patients on such devices.
Yet they will often recommend what type of prosthetic device
you should use for the life you wish to lead.
Therefore, we recommend continuing to allow servicemembers and veterans to select prosthetic-device providers--either in-house fabrication with direct purchase of components and assembly by board-certified VA providers or contracts with prosthetic device
providers outside the VA.
These two distinct groups were chosen because they represent patterns of prosthetic device
use before and after DOD rehabilitation programs were significantly changed for servicemembers with limb loss .
Veterans are not responsible for prosthetic device
costs and are free to choose either a private contract prosthetist or a VA prosthetist.
