The Edinburgh-ORLAU prosthetic system to provide reciprocal locomotion in children and adults with complete transverse lower limb deficiency


, : The Edinburgh-ORLAU prosthetic system to provide reciprocal locomotion in children and adults with complete transverse lower limb deficiency. Prosthetics and Orthotics International 14(3): 111-116

A novel prosthetic system to provide reciprocal locomotion in children and adults with complete transverse lower limb deficiency is described. This is based on the hip joints from the ORLAU ParaWalker, a system with a proven record of success in the orthotic management of paraplegic patients. The fitting of the prototype system to an eight year old girl is described. This experience shows that the orthotic principles of the ParaWalker, which provides reciprocal locomotion for the paraplegic, is equally applicable to the prosthetic situation. Developments are therefore continuing to improve the design and to enable further fittings.

Newly discovered galanin-like peptide (GALP) is a 60 amino acid neuropeptide. Amino acids 9 to 21 of GALP are homologous to the first 13 amino acids of galanin. GALP is a member of GPCR ligand and reportedly implicated in neuroendocrine regulation...
