Abstract [en]
The Indian femoral bone amputees have problems with their prosthese in man y situations that appear during the everyday life. One problem is to sit with crossed legs because of the inability to rotate the artificial leg. Another problem is when the amputee has to viti the toilet. If you are without handicap you easily squat over the toilet which is at the ground level. With upper limb prothesis there are many aspects that have to be considered when squatting. This problem is complex and involves all joints from the foot to the hip in the prosthesis. We have nabyfactured a rotational joint that allows the amputee to rotate his leg as much as he desires. We have solved the squatting problem by making a specific ankle that allows large dorsiflexion of the foot and that will make the visit to the toilet more comfortable.
