Article: Alsancak S., Altınkaynak H., Güner S.: Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu verilerine göre Türkiye’de hastaya özel yapılarak uygulanan protez ve ortezlerin sayısal çeşitlilik analizi (Numerical Variety Analysis of Prostheses and Orthoses Manufacturing and Fitting in Turkey According to Social Security Administration of Turkey)[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Aim: In Turkey, prostheses and orthoses have been manufactured early nineteenth century. The aim of this study is to analyse prosthetics and orthotics, which have been manufactured in Turkey over the last five years and create the infrastructure for scientific studies on this issue and to determine resource consumption. Material and Methods: In the last five years with applied prosthetic and orthotic manufactures were analysed based on the data achieved from Social Security Administration of Turkey. Results: 26236 prostheses and orthoses were manufactured during the last five years. 19381 of them were orthoses and 6755 were prostheses. 9588 lower limb orthoses, 8214 spinal orthoses, and 1579 upper limb orthoses, constitutes orthotics manufacturing and fitting. 6062 lower limb prostheses and 693 upper limb prostheses constitute all prosthetic manufacturing and fitting. According to the results, Knee-Ankle-Foot orthosis (KAFOs) are the most widely applied in the lower extremity orthotics. KAFOs constitute 74% of lower limb orthotics, 37% of orthotics and 27% of all prosthetic-orthotic applications. In addition to that, the most widely applied lower limb prostheses are modular transtibial (TT) prostheses. Modular TT prostheses constitute 63% of lower limb orthotic applications, 57% of prosthetic applications and 15% of prosthetic-orthotic applications. Conclusion: The numbers of KAFOs and modular TT prostheses are 10969 which is nearly 40% of 26236 prosthetic-orthotic applications.Fizyoterapi Rehabilitasyon 04/2013; 24(1):99-103.

ABSTRACT: Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of laterally wedged insoles to treat knee osteoarthritis on frontal plane mechanics and knee varus moment after one year. Methods: Fourteen individuals diagnosed as having medial knee osteoarthritis (OA) and 13 healthy controls were included in this study. Patients wore bilateral full length laterally wedged insoles with medial longitudinal arch, made of high density ethyl vinyl acetate, with 5° tilt angle in their shoes on a regular basis for at least one year. Three dimensional kinematics and kinetics were recorded as the knee OA patients walked in the laboratory after nearly one year both barefoot and with their insoles. Results: Knee angles and total range of motion in the frontal plane were not significantly different between walking conditions when compared to control group (p>0.05). Walking speed and step width were similar when patients walked barefoot and with laterally wedged insoles (p>0.05). Knee varus moment was prominently high when walking barefoot, and significantly decreased with laterally wedged insoles (p<0.05). Conclusion: Our data suggests that use of 5° laterally wedged insole have significant effects on knee varus moment in knee OA.

ABSTRACT: Purpose: Studies on the relative efficacy of Interferential Current (IFC) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is still inconclusive. This study compared the pain threshold of IFC and TENS on experimental cold induced pain among apparently healthy volunteers. Materials and methods: The subjects were 60 consented apparently healthy individuals (30 males, 30 females). Their age ranged between 20 and 25 years with mean age of 23.1±1.49. Subjects were randomly assigned into any of the 3 groups (IFC, TENS or Placebo). An Enraf- Nonius Endomed 582 ID electrical stimulator was used to generate TENS or IFC. The placebo group did not receive stimulation via a connected dummy stimulator. Stimulation was done on the forearm of the subjects while the hand was deep into cold water maintained at 0ºC. The duration of time that the subjects could tolerate the pain and self reported pain intensity were outcome measures. Results: The results revealed no statistical significance in pain intensity among the three groups (F=1.18; p>0.05). Similarly, the pain threshold among the three groups showed no significant difference (F=1.36; p>0.05). Conclusion: No significant difference was found in the pain threshold and pain intensity using either TENS or IFC or placebo on cold induced pain among apparently normal volunteers. Key words: Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation, Interferential current, Pain threshold, Pain intensity.Fizyoterapi Rehabilitasyon 01/2009; 20(1):33-38.
