Prostheses, Lower Limb, Hip Component

Definition : Lower limb prostheses designed for partial functional (e.g., rotation, flexion) replacement of the hip as a component of a prosthesis intended to replace a completely missing limb (i.e., amputated above the hip articulation). These prostheses typically consist of external or partially implantable devices with a mechanism that provides rotational and flexion movements and locking positions at the distal end; they can be anchored directly to the socket lamination plate using a double-hinged plate at the articulation point. Hip prostheses are available in a great variety of configurations and sizes; they must be used combined with other lower limb distal components (e.g., knee, ankle, foot, pylon) as total lower limb prostheses in patients who suffered amputations due to traumatic accidents or, less frequently, in patients who have congenital abnormalities or illness.
