Place:

CCO, Room 3

Abstract:

The research is based on a finite element (FE) model of a known prosthetic foot design, which is validated by mechanical testing of the actual product. The model is used to define the stiffness characteristics of the foot and further enhanced to simulate a controllable stiffness element in the foot.
