The restorative dentist explains the options available and helps the user to select the right one for him prosthesis that he needed to achieve his personal goals. For example, women who want to wear shoes with different heel heights may prefer a prosthetic ankle, which can be adjusted to different heights. Float can make a second leg prosthesis, which is designed especially for swimming and can withstand water, salt and sand. For skiers, there are prosthetic feet that have been designed specifically for the race. Hand prosthesis options for prosthetic hands include Präszisionsgriff (pincer grasp) triple grip (palm-grip) Lateral (key grip) hooks Spherical Depending on their chosen sport different myoelectrically prosthetic hands with precision (pinchers) and tripod (palmar) handles These handles enable users pick up an object or cling a hand prosthesis with a precision handle has a thumb, which counteracts the support of the index finger; a prosthetic hand with a tripod handle has a thumb, the rest of the index and middle fingers opposes ist.Seitliche hand prosthesis A lateral hand prosthesis allows the user a small object to handle (for example, a key turning in a lock), because it has a thumb, at the side of the index finger entgegenwirkt.Hakenprothese a hook prosthesis allows users to carry objects with a handle or a handle, it allows the thumb and Fingerspitzenflexion a myoelectric hooks improves the targeted access spherical hand prosthesis a spherical prosthesis rmöglicht the thumb and Fingerspitzenflexion. A user with this type of prosthesis can a round object capture (eg. As doorknob, light bulb) can Sportartpezifische hand prosthesis Specialty Sports prosthetic hands with a gripper (z. B. for golf, archery and weight lifting), or a hand with a mesh pocket for catching a baseball beinhalten.Myoelektrische functional prosthetic hand New developments in small wireless electronic devices that control movement and sensation in the hand prosthesis of a patient lead a features that allow a more natural grip. Elbow prosthesis Options for the elbow prosthesis include body driving operations by frictional force myoelectrically through the body operated elbow prosthesis A body-powered prosthesis consists of a cable and a harness that exploit the shoulder-back movement to move the arm Although body-powered elbow prostheses are lightweight, are them less attractive than other options and sometimes disturbing to the Benutzer.Durch frictional force operated elbow prosthesis an acting by frictional force prosthesis is lowered by the hand of the other arm or lifted It is leicht.Myoelektrische elbow prosthesis Myoelectric prostheses do not require cables and allow for greater function. However, they are heavy. Prosthetic foot options for prosthetic feet include Solid ankle cushioned heel Uniaxial structure differently depending on the desired sport “ankle Solid, cushioned heel” Multi-axle construction energy saving (dynamic) structure (SACH) prosthetic foot This type of prosthesis is composed of a basic immovable feet, rubber and wood , Stability for the knee is taken when the heel touches the ground, because its soft heel allows the whole foot touches the ground. But less stability is warranted when the user puts on the heel and swings the opposite leg forward, resulting in an uneven gait A SACH prosthetic uses more energy than other types of prosthetic feet It is suitable for people who are in their activities are restricted. and is not a good choice for active MenschenFußprothese uniaxial Construction A prosthesis with a single-axle construction has an ankle that dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the foot allows This design makes it possible that the whole foot touches quickly the ground as soon as the heel comes into contact with the ground, and that the knee quickly through stretches. Because of these features, this prosthesis provides good stability for the knee, which is especially important for people with an amputation above the knee prosthesis with single-axis design are not suitable for active MenschenFußprothese with multi-axis (multiaxial) design a prosthetic foot with a multi-axial design has an ankle that allows dorsiflexion and plantar flexion and inversion of the foot, and eversion, and rotation of the ankle This design allows users to be better on uneven ground and is therefore suitable for active people. With newer, lighter models only minimal maintenance is required, the prosthesis can werdenFußprothese lifelike made with energy-saving (dynamic) design a prosthetic foot with storing energy ( “stored-energy design”) is made of carbon graphite, which is both light and strong. It requires less energy because the foot stores energy when the heel touches the ground to when the toes push off to move the user forward, this design may include a shock absorber to reduce the force of contact with the ground while walking users are easily able to walk and relatively natural walking This type of prosthesis is suitable for active Menschen.Sportartspezifische foot prosthesis a prosthetic foot can be customized for a particular sport. For example, it is for runners (long and short distances) a prosthesis which is designed so that it bends toward the sole, and has an energy-saving function to propel the rotor forwards. For swimmers this prosthesis was developed with an angle that allows the execution of all swimming styles. A knee prosthesis options for knee prostheses include Uniaxial construction by utilizing the frictional force Polycentric design weight Activated attitude control Manual braking function liquid control system microprocessor function knee prostheses uniaxial structure using friction force has a single-axis knee prosthesis with a constant friction only a fulcrum (the knee bends like a hinge). The design is simple, and the prosthesis is strong, light and inexpensive This prosthesis used unchanged frictional force to control the leg when it swings forward users can walk normally in a certain speed. This prosthesis is based on the correct adjustment by the prosthetist and the muscle control by the user in order to be granted afford knee prosthesis with polycentric design This type of knee prosthesis provides the stability increased stability by a plurality of hinges having a plurality of pivots, each of which change on how the knee to be moved this prosthesis shortened slightly when the knee is flexed, so that lifting the toe easily from the ground when the leg swings forward. The polycentric design of this type of prosthesis gives people whose leg was amputated at the knee joint, stability, enabling users to sit more comfortably without the knee hervorsteht.Knieprothese with weight-activated stance control a prosthesis enabled by weight position control blocks the knees in a slightly bent position (for braking) when the weight is shifted to the foot. Constant friction force is used to control the leg while swinging forward, but the prosthesis has an additional knee construction, a supporting role users can only go a certain speed in the swing motion. This prosthesis is suitable for people with weak Muskeln.Knieprothese with manual brake function A knee prosthesis with manual lock can be locked or unlocked by users, as necessary, but requires a cable. Although this type of prosthesis offers the most stability, it requires more effort than other types of knee replacements because the prosthesis does not swing phase flexion possible walking is stiff and awkward, and is the least desirable Wahl.Knieprothese with fluid control system knee prostheses with a liquid control system can compressed air (pneumatic), or fluid (hydraulic) for the generation, storage and release of energy use, when the knee flexes and extends. This type of knee prosthesis allows users at different speeds to run and is the best choice for most people. You can seinKnieprothese equipped with a microprocessor with microprocessor function knee prostheses with microprocessors have sensors that respond to movement and adjust the hydraulic fluid or magnetorheological fluid control system accordingly. The prosthetic knee provides good control when the foot is on the floor and when the leg swings forward. It can be programmed so that a stumble can be compensated and the users can also walk down stairs and ramps it less energy is required to use the prosthesis, and allows the user a more natural gait than would otherwise be possible.
