China’s first intelligent prosthetic leg power “Windrunner” market conference recently held in Zhengzhou, marking China’s first smart knee prosthetic product was launched.
Integrated media reported on September 15, the country’s first intelligent prosthetic leg power “Windrunner” market conference recently held in Zhengzhou, marking China’s first smart knee prosthetic product was launched. This product consists of Peking University Institute of Intelligent Systems and Human Engineering Laboratory, doctoral tutor Wang Qining led research and development, with independent intellectual property rights, reached the international advanced level. Wang Qining recent years has been engaged in intelligent robotics systems and human-computer interaction studies, including intelligent bionic robots, intelligent multi-joint limbs, human motion recognition and gait analysis.
“Windrunner” is the high-performance assistive limb, the whole structure contains sensors, computer chips and electromechanical devices, capable of a high degree of biological neural analog functions, brain and skeletal muscle tissue, which is the first of several of the world can be robotics and prosthetics manufacturing technology combined with one of the products.
“Windrunner” smart power ankle by electromechanical and electronic control system, in order to identify the rate of 25 times the human eye to capture the sensor signal, the calculation results by the chip in real time to determine the user geographical location, suggesting that the intention of the user’s actions , automatic identification of the terrain, the disabled gait, so instead of the human brain and biological neural action directive issued to physically handicapped. Walking can take the initiative to adjust the angle of the ankle joint, to avoid toe touches the ground, automatically adapt to the user’s walking speed, to help users complete natural stairs, down the slope, cross obstacles such action; automatically when you sit down and ankle bend, recover natural action. Electromechanical device can provide active torque at a critical stage, to provide assistance to the user when the up and down stairs or slopes. Feet of carbon fiber material, the use of space technology multi-layer composite technology, compared to conventional prosthetic materials with high strength, good flexibility, light weight, life waiting advantage.
According to the product team engineers BRANCH, currently monopolized by major field of intelligent prosthetics company Ossur of Iceland and other foreign manufacturers, “Windrunner” Listing intelligent prosthetic knee to fill the domestic industry gaps.
