Trend:Robotic Prosthetics

Presented By

Denise S. Bahr, R.N.

objectives
Objectives
  • Describe trend: Robotic Prosthetics
  • Discuss and evaluate the hardware and software utilized with this trend.
  • Explain and evaluate the information system used with this trend.
  • Assess the role and functions of the nurse informaticist when working with this trend.
  • Examine related legal/ethical issues.
  • Illustrate the Advantages/Disadvantages from nursing perspective.
what are robotic prosthetics
What are Robotic Prosthetics?
  • Prosthetic replace missing or damaged body appendages.
  • Robotic Prosthetics have working mechanisms to aid function.
prosthetics today
Prosthetics Today
  • “…turning handicap into a high-performance, cybernetic fashion statement” (Ricker, 2009, ¶2).
robotic prosthetic hardware
Robotic Prosthetic Hardware
  • Prosthetic hand
  • Equipped with microchips and microprocessors for movement
  • electrodes on skin above amputation to operate hand (Singer, 2007).
electrode stimulation
Electrode Stimulation
  • Tiny electrodes attached to skin
  • Connect to prosthetic, aligned with electrode receivers
  • Receivers connected to robotic hand
  • Fingers grip

(Singer, 2007, ¶3-4)

robotic prosthetic software
Robotic Prosthetic Software
  • “LifeHand Experiment”
  • Brain-Wave Technology
robotic prosthetic software1
Robotic Prosthetic Software
  • LifeHand Experiment
  • Connect prosthetic hand to residual limb
  • Run electrode from prosthetic to spinal cord
  • Brain controls prosthetic hand
robotic prosthetic example
Robotic Prosthetic Example
  • Hardware = prosthetic hand, electrodes on skin
  • Software = muscle electrical stimulation signals computer in hand to grip fingers
  • This is Myoelectrics.
software evaluation
Software Evaluation
  • Very successful in trial patients, with high satisfaction by patients
  • Patients performed faster than predicted
  • Axiom 1 – Met
  • Axiom 2 – Met
  • Axiom 3 - Met
information systems
Information Systems
  • Which used?
    • Electronic Medical Records
    • MedInformatix
  • Used By?
    • Physicians, Nurses, consultants, midwives, dispensers, para-medical staff, and pharmaceuticals. (Medinformatix, 2008)
electronic medical records
Electronic Medical Records
  • Usually found in hospital
  • Computerized legal medical record
    • Allowing for storage
    • Allowing for retrieval
    • Allowing for manipulation
information systems1
