Q&A

What do I Need to Consider During Patient Setup with LokomatPro with FreeD?

FreeD is an optional module of the Lokomat that provides a more natural and physiologic gait pattern while supporting lateral transition of the body weight. In order to setup a patient on a safe and efficient way with the new FreeD module we recommend you to read this entry. Below, you will find a detailed description of a patient setup with and without FreeD.

LokomatPro

  1. Measure upper and lower legs, adjust the orthoses and enter the values in the software.
  2. Select the cuffs and attach them to the orthoses.
  3. Select the harness and leg loops. Fix the harness on the patient.
  4. Attach the patient to the support frame and lift the patient. Close the swivel door and lower the orthoses.
  5. Adjust the height of the Lokomat by placing the hip cushions directly above the greater trochanter. Set the pelvic depth and width using the dedicated hand wheels. Fix the pelvis by fastening the strap around the pelvis and by adjusting the orthosis to the rings on the harness.
  6. Close the upper cuff and check the knee axis, adjust lower leg length if necessary. Close the middle and lower cuffs.
  7. Adjust the upper cuff bracket so that the orthosis is aligned with the patient’s femur. Adjust the lower bracket so that an imaginary lines through the lower leg falls behind the lateral malleolus. Adjust the middle bracket and check the knee extension.
  8. Adjust the upper, middle and lower cuffs so as to follow the anatomical axes of the patient’s legs and so as to set the track width.
  9. Fasten the foot lifters.

 

LokomatPro with FreeD

  1.  Measure upper and lower legs, adjust the orthoses and enter the values in the software.
  2. Select the cuffs and attach them to the orthoses. The upper cuffs are delivered in sizes 9 and 7 and should fit most patients. If this is not the case, the middle cuffs can be used.
  3. Select the harness and leg loops. Fix the harness on the patient.
  4. Attach the patient to the support frame and lift the patient. Close the swivel door and lower the orthoses. Open the pelvic orthosis to its maximum width.

  5. Adjust the height of the Lokomat by aligning the greater trochanter with the white plastic indicators.

    Adjust the pelvic depth by turning on the hand wheel and the pelvic width by pushing inwards on the pelvic cushions (to open, push button and pull). Attach the patient harness to the orthosis by buckling the pelvic straps on the harness.

  6. Close the upper cuff and check the knee axis, adjust lower leg length if necessary. Close the middle and lower cuffs.
  7. Adjust the upper cuff bracket so that the “Lokomat femur” is aligned with the patient’s femur. Adjust the lower bracket so that an imaginary lines through the lower leg falls behind the lateral malleolus. Adjust the middle bracket and check the knee extension.
  8. Fasten the foot lifters.
  9. Adjust the lower cuff so as to set the track width (frontal plane alignment). Set the amount of lateral and medial translation of the upper and middle cuffs and close the blocking mechanism screws.
  10. Check that each leg does not collide with the foot lifter bar of the opposite leg at any time during the gait phase.
