Classification of activity and body weight

MOBILITY CLASSES Low activity - first stage of mobility (I) It applies to patients who move mainly indoors. If they go outside, usually for a short time, on a flat surface, without any obstacles, preferably accompanied by a guardian. They move with the aid of the prosthesis on a flat surface, with a slow and even walking speed. Patients with low activity most often use orthopedic support devices. They are usually canes, a ball or walkers. The use of a prosthesis enables low-activity patients to stand and move around in the necessary situations, especially in closed rooms and occasionally outdoors. Medium activity - second level of mobility (II) It applies to patients with limited freedom of movement, both indoors and outdoors, in the field. Movement occurs at the same slow walking speed. When moving outside, patients usually remain independent. They cope with low terrain obstacles such as uneven ground, slopes and hills. They can overcome stairs and curbs. The use of a prosthesis allows patients with moderate activity to stand, slightly restricted mobility in confined spaces and uniform walking outside. Time to move and stay outside is limited and usually fully planned. High activity - third degree of mobility (III) It applies to patients with unlimited freedom of movement. They are able to overcome most of the encountered obstacles on their own. Movement occurs at a variable walking speed - from medium to high. The only limitation is the possibility of exposing the prosthesis to above-average mechanical overload. The degree of functionality of patients with high activity is comparable and slightly lower than in the case of healthy people. The use of the prosthesis enables patients with high activity to stand, move around indoors and with a slightly limited ability to move outside. Very high activity - fourth level of mobility (IV) It applies to patients with unlimited freedom of movement and high requirements, full ability to move mainly outdoors, practically without restrictions. Movement is unlimited with the prosthesis. The time and length of the traveled road are not limited. When selecting the prosthesis, care should be taken that the prosthesis meets the highest functional requirements, due to the possibility of high loads due to stress, deformation or impacts.
