Development of bony range of motion (B-ROM) boundary for total hip replacement planning.

Comput Methods Programs Biomed 2022 Jun 8;222:106937. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

WMG, The University of Warwick, Coventry CV4 7AL, UK.

Background And Objective: Pre-operative surgical planning using computer simulation is increasingly standard practice before Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA), in order to determine the optimal implant positions, and thereby minimise post-operative complications such as dislocation, wear and leg length discrepancy. One of the limitations of current methods, however, is the lack of information on the subject-specific reference range of motion (ROM) that could be used as targets for surgical planning. Only a limited number of hip motions are considered, which are neither subject-specific, nor representative of all the hip motions associated with all the activities of daily livings (ADLs).

Kinematic Analysis of Exoskeleton-Assisted Community Ambulation: An Observational Study in Outdoor Real-Life Scenarios.

Sensors (Basel) 2022 Jun 16;22(12). Epub 2022 Jun 16.

IRCCS San Raffaele Roma, 00163 Rome, Italy.

(1) Background: In neurorehabilitation, Wearable Powered Exoskeletons (WPEs) enable intensive gait training even in individuals who are unable to maintain an upright position. The importance of WPEs is not only related to their impact on walking recovery, but also to the possibility of using them as assistive technology; however, WPE-assisted community ambulation has rarely been studied in terms of walking performance in real-life scenarios. (2) Methods: This study proposes the integration of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) system to analyze gait kinematics during real-life outdoor scenarios (regular, irregular terrains, and slopes) by comparing the ecological gait (no-WPE condition) and WPE-assisted gait in five able-bodied volunteers.
