application. Moreover, a 3D printed
AFO is superior in fit, comfort, and overall
design and appearance.
Sensor-Enabled Technology. Recent
advances in wireless sensors are promising
new and unexplored opportunities
in the orthopedic implants sector. Smart
sensor-enabled prosthetics with sensory
feedback offer a sensation of flexing
and landing the legs, giving the user the
ability to walk quickly and comfortably.
Myoelectric Prostheses. Electrically
powered prostheses, also known as myoelectric
prostheses, are a significant advance
to recovering a lost limb function
of amputees. Powered by motors and
batteries onboard, these prostheses are
monitored by inputs from electrical signals
generated by muscles. However,
more than 25 percent of total amputees
reject this prosthesis because it lacks
sensory feedback. Recent advancements
also allow these prostheses to capture
feedback more efficiently. For instance,
a myoelectric arm prosthesis is designed
with wrist position feedback.
Haptics Technology. Adding movement
by replacing a damaged body
part is possible due to the use of a
prosthesis, and adding sense to that
movement is possible with haptics
technology. Haptics helps in restoring
the sense of touch by relaying force,
pressure, and slip measurements to
the user.
Prostheses Controlled by Thoughts.
To control a limb just by thoughts is
now possible with the advanced prostheses
that use muscle grafts to amplify
the signals. These new devices perform
with >90 percent accuracy.
Moving Ahead
Mobility is one of the fundamental
requirements for any human. Accidents
can be avoided, but conditions
such as inflammatory diseases, degeneration
of bones, , and the many bone
issues that come with aging are inevitable.
It is quite clear that in the coming
years, the population using prostheses
will continue to rise.
OEMs and prosthetists are moving
toward achieving the goal of even
better- performing prostheses implants
with improved sensory capabilities to
match the lifelikeness of the prostheses.
Groundbreaking innovations are
improving orthopedic implants and
enabling customization of prostheses.
These innovations will continue to
merge with emerging cutting-edge
technologies in the future, which foretells
the arrival of some promising developments
for orthopedic prosthetics.
