Talking about convention technology, there are various types of
prosthesis available in the market. However, the application of those
prostheses can be painful, most technologies are not affordable by the
patients, there were also cases of mechanical system failures, donning and doffing
are troublesome and noisy suspension system.
The researchers from Universiti Malaya have developed the solutions to those problems with:
Polyethtlene f Oam liner
liner with shuttle lock
Prosthetic Suspension System
The technology uses magnetic
system to enhance the performance of the prosthetic device. Based on UM
research, the developed technology reduces the pain during donning and doffing.
These enhances the quality of life of amputees.
