    Walking on legs using orthosis for spinal cord injury patients has many advantages and decreases the physiological and psychological problems comparing with wheelchair application, however high energy consumption and early exhaustion of patients are disadvantages of orthosis usage. The most important group of orthosis for spinal cord injury patients is RGO (Reciprocating Gait Orhtosis) which a reciprocating cable mechanism links two hip joints motion. So swinging of mobile leg gets easier and stability of patient in standing and walking step increases. Regarding to existent reports about high energy consumption in walking by orthosis, this project has been fulfilled to design an improved... 

    Layer Production of Orthosis in Cloud Manufacturing Environment: Focusing on Boston Brace

    The purpose of this research is to optimize the design and manufacture of medical orthoses. In this regard, the business model canvas was used in order to define a general framework for the orthosis system in the cloud. In the cloud, patients are provided with services such as personalized orthoses with lower cost and high speed of sending orthoses (while not having to go back to the lab), as well as providing service for doctors such as information sourcing and full expectations of treatment plan and representing cost effectiveness for laboratory. These values were determined through the business model canvas in the value proposition section. Other important services and requirements in...
