Ottobock Helix 3D can be applied to amputees who have undergone hip disarticulation of the hip joint and hemipelvectomy in which part of the pelvis is also removed.
In natural walking, the hip moves in three dimensions. However, we have to adapt this to some balancing movements of legs and feet. Lost internal and external rotation ability after amputation has been integrated into the one-piece joint structure of the Ottobock Helix 3D hip joint system. Miniature hydraulics in the hip joint reveal a series of three-dimensional movements during stopping and swinging. Movement series; It is more physiological compared to previous uniaxial, forward and backward moving and non-dynamic systems.
You can walk at a pace that the Ottobock Helix 3D hip joint system suits you.
A wider range of motion provides you many convenience in daily life. Sitting, wearing shoes or getting in the car. When sitting, the joint is not below the pelvis. Thus, a comfortable sitting is provided.
For the necessary hip movement to take the next step; Amputee persons had to make a strong and unnatural lifting motion in the pelvis on the prosthetic side. These situations are corrected with Ottobock Helix 3D.
Hip disarticulation prostheses are adapted to the body with the help of a pelvic corset, this corset has a hip joint at the bottom or front of the hip joint to be preferred.These joints are mechanically produced to complete anatomical hip activities, downward modular parts, knee joint and foot parts. . In this prosthetic system, as above the knee, the tuberosisischii bone, which is the part of the human body that feels the least pain, carries body weight.
