06 - ASSISTIVE PRODUCTS ATTACHED TO THE BODY FOR SUPPORTING NEUROMUSCULOSKELETAL OR MOVEMENT RELATED FUNCTIONS (ORTHOSES) AND REPLACING ANATOMICAL STRUCTURES (PROSTHESES)
Orthoses are externally applied devices used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromusculoskeletal systems; prostheses are externally applied devices used to replace, wholly or in part, an absent or deficient body segment. Included are, e.g. body-powered and externally powered external orthoses, prostheses, orthopaedic footwear. Excluded are endo-prostheses, which are not part of this International Standard.
06.18 - Upper limb prostheses
A collection of compatible components that can be integrated to produce a range of different upper limb prostheses. Included are, e.g. cosmetic upper limb prostheses.
06.18.03 - Partial hand prostheses
Devices that replace part of the upper limb distal to the wrist joint after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency. Included are, e.g. finger prostheses.
06.18.06 - Wrist disarticulation prostheses
Devices that replace part of the upper limb at the wrist joint after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.09 - Trans-radial prostheses
Devices that replace part of the upper limb between the wrist and elbow joints after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.12 - Elbow disarticulation prostheses
Devices that replace part of the upper limb at the elbow joint after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.15 - Trans-humeral prostheses
Devices that replace part of the upper limb between the shoulder and elbow joints. after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.18 - Shoulder disarticulation prostheses
Devices that replace the upper limb at the shoulder joint after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.21 - Scapulo-thoracic disarticulation prostheses
Devices that replace the upper limb at the scapulo-thoracic and sterno-clavicular joints after amputation or due to congenital limb deficiency
06.18.24 - Prosthetic hands and prosthetic digits
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb; prosthetic hands are designed to substitute for some of the functions of the normal hand and can be static, passive, active or combined passive/active; the prosthetic hands can be externally powered or body powered
06.18.25 - Split hooks and other terminal devices to employ a pincer action
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb like split hooks to employ a pincer. action. Specialized appliances or tools for prosthetic hands, see >061826
06.18.26 - Specialized appliances or tools for prosthetic hands
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb and that perform a wide range of individual functions; the device can be passive, adjustable or active. Devices to employ a pincer action, see >061825
06.18.30 - Wrist units
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb and that substitute for some of the functions of the normal wrist by means of controlled motions
06.18.33 - Elbow units
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb and that substitute for some of the functions of the normal elbow by means of controlled motions
06.18.36 - Shoulder units
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb and that substitute for some of the functions of the normal shoulder by means of controlled motions
06.18.39 - External (side) joints for upper limb prostheses
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for some of the dynamic and sensory attributes of the normal limb and that constrain unwanted motion of the human joint(s). Included are, e.g. wrist joints, elbow joints, shoulder joints.
06.18.40 - Humeral rotation units
Functional components of upper limb prostheses that substitute for any restriction in the range of internal/external rotation of the shoulder due to the socket of the prosthesis
06.18.41 - Additional flexion units
Functional components of upper limb prostheses between shoulder and elbow joints in a shoulder disarticulation prosthesis to improve the effective flexion range of the elbow
06.18.42 - Sockets for upper limb prostheses
Interface components of upper limb prostheses that are in direct contact with the wearer for achieving support, stabilization and suspension; may contain elements which contribute to the activation and/or control of functional components. Included are, e.g. sockets for partial hand amputation, wrist disarticulation, trans-radial (below-elbow) amputation, elbow disarticulation, trans-humeral. (above-elbow) amputation, shoulder disarticulation, forequarter amputation.
06.18.45 - Liners for upper limb prostheses
Interface components of upper limb prostheses that are in direct contact with the wearer for achieving support, stabilization and suspension; may contain elements which contribute to the activation and/or control of functional components. Included are, e.g. liners to be placed in sockets for partial hand amputation, wrist. disarticulation, trans-radial (below-elbow) amputation, elbow disarticulation, trans-. humeral (above-elbow) amputation, shoulder disarticulation, forequarter amputation.
06.18.48 - Suspensory components
Suspensory components that are used to maintain the prosthesis relative to the body. Included are, e.g. suspension components for the principal suspension sites, pelvis, trunk, shoulder(s), upper arm, humeral condyles, radial/ulnar styloids.
06.18.51 - Alignment components of upper limb prostheses
Alignment components that permit changes in the position of the components of a prosthesis relative to one another. Included are, e.g. alignment components that are part of the structure of the prosthesis or can be removed and replaced by another structural component.
06.18.54 - Structural components of upper limb prostheses
Structural components that connect the interface, functional and alignment components and maintain the integrity of the prosthesis. Included are, e.g. endoskeletal and exoskeletal components for prosthetic construction.
06.18.57 - Finishing (cosmetic) components of upper limb prostheses
Cosmetic components that simulate the appearance and feel of the normal limb. Included are, e.g. shells, fillers, skins, stockings, gloves.
