Considerations for development of sensing and monitoring tools tofacilitate treatment and care of persons with lower-limb loss: A review

Brian J. Hafner, PhD; Joan E. Sanders, PhD

slide2

Aim

    • Review existing solutions for collecting and using objective data to support/facilitate clinical decisions about prosthetic rehabilitation.
    • Suggest new strategies for applying this information in clinical practice.
  • Relevance
    • Novel solutions for restoring and optimizing function after limb loss will promote healthier lifestyles, improve quality of life, and decrease reliance on physical, personal, and financial assistance.
method
Method
  • Proposed multidimensional model of rehabilitation that embraces use of sensing and monitoring technologies for communicating information between prosthetic devices, patients, and their healthcare providers.
  • Presented hypothetical clinical situations to illustrate how information from physical and biological sensors can promote successful outcomes for prosthetic patients.
results
Results
  • Advances in sensing and monitoring technologies have made obtaining information directly from prosthetic patients possible across settings.
    • Sensors often require patient compliance with application and wear recommendations.
  • Integrating sensors into prosthetic limbs overcomes many limitations of stand-alone sensor devices for health monitoring.
    • However, sensing technologies have yet to be integrated into clinical practices or used regularly to enhance quality of care.
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Although challenges to development of efficient, cost-effective sensor systems for prosthetic applications remain, they can be addressed.
  • Thoughtfully developing and integrating sensor systems into clinical practice may enhance quality of care provided to persons with limb loss and promote prosthetic users’ function, health, and quality of life.
