I would like to say that whatever is beautiful, what ever is meaningful, whatever brings you happiness may it be yours this holiday season and throughout the coming season. Wish you all a very happy christmas There are more company which are in the business of fabricating the knee braces most of them are directly connected to P&O field, but as in every industries we have some non expected company one of which is an italian company which is known for the manufacturing motor cycle that is ducati, they came up with a knee brace. to know more about this be sure to check the episode till last.

Gait Analysis & Tech Around It
When we centre on the medical field, changes in gait reveal key information about persons’ quality of life. This is of special interest when searching for reliable information on the evolution of different diseases: (a) neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's; (b) systemic diseases such as cardiopathies (in which gait is clearly affected); (c) alterations in deambulation dynamic due to sequelae from stroke and (d) diseases caused by ageing, which affect a large percentage of the population. Accurate reliable knowledge of gait characteristics at a given time, and even more importantly, monitoring and evaluating them over time, will enable early diagnosis of diseases and their complications and help to find the best treatment. Within this episode we are going to see the various approaches to perform a gait analysis, and the technologies which are involved in it, for say a wearable sensor, of a floor sensor. There are various other method or test which are also involved in the process. Source link's: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3958266/ ( Gait Analysis Method An Overview of Wearable and Non-Wearable Systems, Highlighting Clinical Applications) https://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/research-news/textile-pressure-sensors-can-be-washed-2015-10/ (Textile pressure sensors can be washed) If you have any suggestion or question related to this topic or any other topic, I will be happy to answer then.  Follow me in Instagram or my Facebook Page @ prosthetic orb or you can also follow my personal Instagram @Elegenccs peter

Origami Orthosis
When we think of Origami the first photo which comes in mind is a paper flower or a plane , but the origami concept has used by NASA to develop various type of components or parts for outer space. the same concept of origami can also be used in the prosthetic and orthotic field, as a matter of face the use of artificial muscle used in prosthetic are inspired by origami, As for today episode we are more focus on the application and various material which can be used to design a origami inspired orthosis. the yanko design from beyond function has a origami inspired orthosis design link below: https://www.yankodesign.com/2016/09/04/origami-orthopedics/ if you guys has any suggestion or any question, I will be happy to answer them, follow me in face book page or instagram at Prosthetic orb.

A Bionic Vision
The concept of a artificial function eye is very far fetch but, the idea of mobile phone or airplane was also just an idea. In today episode we are discussing the idea and some of the factor considering while designing the ideal bionic eye, for say the appearance of the eye, The functionality of the bionic eye, The limitless application of a bionic eye. There is a case where 'Rob Spence' was a part of a project called eyeborg project in 2016, i have share some of the links for the refences article below https://eyeborgproject.tv/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JC2ffB0uXEw https://www.bbc.com/news/av/technology-40598471 If you have any question or suggestion for me I will be happy to answer those in my Instgram or Facebook Page at prosthetic orb
