Prostheses, Lower Limb, Ankle Component

Definition : Lower limb prostheses designed for partial functional (primarily flexion) replacement of the ankle portion of a missing lower limb. These prostheses typically consist of external devices with a mechanism that provides flexion (i.e., acting as a hinge) and some degree of internal and external rotation movements and locking positions at the distal end of the foot prostheses; they are usually attached at the proximal end with a socket to the residual limb or another prosthetic device (e.g., a pylon). Ankle component prostheses are available in a great variety of configurations and sizes; they may be passive, mechanical, or patient-actuated. The prostheses are used mainly in patients who have congenital abnormalities or who suffered amputations due to illness (e.g., diabetes) or traumatic accidents.
