Resumen

DOTE, Jacqueline et al. 3D-printed hand prostheses function in adolescents with congenital hand amputation: A case series. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2020, vol.91, n.3, pp.410-416. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.32641/rchped.v91i3.1415.

Objective:

To describe the effect of the 3D-printed Cyborg Beast prosthesis on upper limbs function in adolescents with congenital hand amputation.

Clinical Cases:

Five patients aged between 12 and 17 years, with congenital hand amputation were selected. All patients were from the Teletón Institute in Santiago, Chile. The patients were trained for prosthesis use in four sessions. Hand function was evaluated without prosthesis, at 1 and 4 months of use with the modified Bilan 400 points scale, and upper limb function perception was evaluated with the ’Upper Extremity Functional Index (UEFI)’. At 1 month and 4 months of use, the percentage change for hand functionality for the unaffected limbs was between -11% and -4%; and -9% and -2% for the affected limb. The percentage change for the upper limbs perceived function was -62%.

Conclusions:

The use of the 3D-printed Cyborg Beast prosthesis was not a functional solution for the 5 patients included in this study. Future research is needed to improve the functionality of these types of 3D-printed hand prostheses.

Palabras clave : 3D-printed prosthesis; congenital upper limb differences; upper limb function.
