A bandage is a piece of material used either to support a medical device such as a dressing or splint, or on its own to provide support to or to restrict the movement of a part of the body.When used with a dressing, the dressing is applied directly on a wound, and a bandage used to hold the dressing in place. Other bandages are used without dressings, such as elastic bandages that are used to reduce swelling or provide support to a sprained ankle. Tight bandages can be used to slow blood flow to an extremity, such as when a leg or arm is bleeding heavily.

Breakaway leg sling

The Breakaway Leg Sling is provided for use with a walker or crutches and suspends a single leg in a below-the-knee cast, shoe, or bandaged foot in a rearward, elevated position and assists the patient with weight avoidance on the suspended leg. The apparatus is prepared for use from a safe sitting position, and the leg is placed into its suspended position during the natural motion of standing. If needed, the apparatus includes a breakaway safety fastener that disengages at an effective, pre-determined force using the muscles of the suspended leg thereby providing the patient with immediate use of the suspended leg to regain balance and prevent a potential fall. If disengaged, the safety fastener is easily restored to operational use. The Breakaway Leg Sling is comprised of a torso harness device, a detachable foot cradle device, a load strap used to engage the torso harness to the foot cradle device, and the breakaway safety fastener incorporated into the length of the load strap. The foot cradle device may be left on the foot for extended periods of time without hampering the patient's comfort thereby leaving the foot cradle anchor in a ready-to-connect position. If desired, the foot cradle device may be removed for bathing or other purposes, and the foot cradle device will retain its custom size thus saving the patient time and effort when replacing the foot cradle device on the foot or cast.

Exoskeleton rehabilitation robot for rehabilitation of lower limb walking function and control system and method thereof

The invention discloses an exoskeleton rehabilitation robot for rehabilitation of a lower limb walking function and a control system and method thereof. The robot comprises a backrest, a hip joint power source, a hip joint component, a waist component, a thigh bar component, a knee joint power source, a knee joint component, a shank bar component, an ankle joint component and a foot pedal. According to the lower limb exoskeleton rehabilitation robot, a driving scheme is designed by utilizing a bionics principle, so that the initiative degree of freedom of the ankle joint is increased; through initiatively pulling the heel tendon muscles of the patients, the rehabilitation speed of the ankle joint function is improved; the waist component, a connection rod mechanism and the foot pedal adopt a carbon fiber composite material, so that the structure weights and volumes are lightened while the strength is kept; and a non-polar adjustable function is set for the waist width, thigh length and shank length, and flexible bandages are equipped, so that the wearing comfort level requirement of the users is satisfied to the greatest extent. The robot disclosed by the invention not only can be used as a tool for riding instead of walk for the patients with walking disability, but also can help the stroke patients to obtain walking ability again through initiative training.
