AI adapts the prosthesis to a specific patient in minutes

ИИ адаптирует протез под конкретного пациента за считанные минуты Patients who receive robotic limbs are usually not able to immediately adapt to a complex functional device. It takes several hours of manual adjustment to adapt the prosthesis to the individual style of walking of the client. However, in this area of medicine, the introduction of artificial intelligence can benefit everyone: both patients and specialists. ИИ адаптирует протез под конкретного пациента за считанные минуты In comparison, AI technology automatically adjusts the robotic knee in a few minutes, allowing those who wear it to walk smoothly on a flat surface for 10 minutes. The system analyzes the indicators from the sensors, which should fluctuate within the specified limits, characteristic of ordinary unhurried walking. If the data deviate from the norm, the AI corrects the operation of the nodes of the robotic prosthesis, normalizing the rhythm of movement. However, while the technology with AI has many shortcomings: the chip with AI is energy-consuming and is not hidden in any way, it is located directly in the back of the prosthesis, the prototype works only on a flat surface (while there is no question of walking on rough terrain, on slopes or stairs) and it is not universal, that is, it is not suitable for every person with an amputated limb. The team will continue to work on these issues.
