Does the prosthetic user achieve better comfort throughout the day looking on pressure distribution and volume control by using a RevoFit2 volume adjustable crus prosthetic compared to a traditional prosthetic? : A case study with test of reliability (English)
Abstract [da]

Baggrund: Protesebrugere har ofte problemer med optimal pasform og oplever forandringer i volumen. Et RevoFit2 laminationskit gør det muligt for bandagisten at anvende målrettede kompressionslåger, der gør det muligt for brugeren at øge eller mindske tryk uden at have behov for at fjerne tøj

Formål: Formålet med studiet var at undersøge, om en volumenjusterbar protese med RevoFit2 kan give brugeren en bedre komfort gennem dagen med henblik på trykfordeling og volumenændring sammenlignet med en traditionel lamineret protese.

Metode: Trykket mellem underbenet og protesen samt volumen af underbenet blev målt på en person diagnostiseret med longitudinel dysmeli. Statiske og dynamiske tests, samt volumen af underbenet blev undersøgt over 4 dage. Alle fordelt over morgen, middag og eftermiddag.

Resultat: Signifikant mindskning af trykket fremkom ved brugen af RevoFit2-protesen, sammenlignet med den laminerede traditionelle protese. Trykforandringen i løbet af dagen var også signifikant faldende på RevoFit2-protesen i modsætning til den traditionelle, som var signifikant øgende. Der blev ikke fundet nogen signifikans ved volumenforandringerne i løbet af dagen.

Konklusion: RevoFit2 er en brugbar og let håndtérbar metode til at opnå komfort for brugeren. Ved hjælp af RevoFit kan trykket på knogleprominenserne mindskes.

Abstract [en]

Background: Prosthetic users often have problems with optimal fit and experience changes in volume. A RevoFit2 lamination kit allows the prosthetist to apply targeted compression gates that allows the user to change or reduce pressure without removing clothes.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a volume-adjustable prosthetic with RevoFit2 can give the user a better comfort throughout the day based on pressure distribution and volume change compared to a traditional laminated prosthesis.

Method: The pressure between the lower leg and the prosthetic and the volume of the lower leg were measured on a healthy person diagnosed with longitudinal dysmelia. The static and dynamic tests and volume of the residual limb were examined over four days. All tests spread over morning, noon and afternoon.

Results: Significant pressure reduction occurred using the RevoFit2-prosthetic compared to the traditional laminated prosthetic on most of the pressure points. The change of pressure throughout the day was also significantly decreasing on the RevoFit2-prosthetic compared to the laminated prosthetic, which were significantly increasing. No significance was found when measuring volume changes throughout the day.

Conclusion: RevoFit2 is a useful and easily manageable method to gain increased comfort for the user. By using RevoFit2 it is possible to reduce the pressure on the bony landmarks.
