Aquasplash prosthetic leg: A case study


Author(s): Marzana Shelly

Abstract:
An experimental single case study was conducted with an aim of introducing a feasible and cost effective shower prosthetic leg and to evaluate the effectiveness of the new conceptual design. A 21 years old female patient who had undergone transtibial reconstruction surgery was studied to fabricate a shower prosthesis that can be worn by the amputees while taking shower. A new prosthetic shower leg was fabricated based on her measurements and her feedback was taken from the patient about the same. The feedback given by the patient showed that the new design of prosthesis is feasible ad comfortable during stump washing, taking shower and for short distance walking. Thus the design discussed in the present study can be a cost effective way to make amputees physically independent in washroom and also reduce the risk of fall and early degeneration of joints among amputees.
