Lecture Scientific/Practical

Biomimetic outcomes through advanced prosthetic knee and ankle technology during standing on non-level ground

Abstract: The inter-limb loading and balance ability of five transfemoral amputees, for four prosthetic conditions were measured while standing on a sloped surface and compared to able-bodied controls. The combination of advanced knee and ankle technologies achieved the most biomimetic outcomes.

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Challenging everyday gait situations performed with two microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee joints: Do their safety-potentials differ?

Abstract: Two currently available microprocessor-controlled knee joints were investigated in various safety-relevant everyday gait situations regarding their biomechanical performance. There is evidence for significant differences in the safety potential of these knee joints.

Balance evaluation and coordination strategies in patients after lower limb amputation

Abstract: This study aims to analyze dynamic balance and movement strategies in subjects using lower limb prosthesis and compare those with unimpaired subjects. Therefore, self-initiated postural sway, gait initiation and termination, walking on even and uneven ground and functional test have been conducted.

Lecture Scientific/Practical

Validation of microprocessor knee integrated activity monitoring algorithm

Abstract: Activity monitoring in prosthetics can provide important outcome measure data. More advanced devices have this capability in-built, removing the necessity to wear additional hardware. This study sought to evaluate the performance of such a device, compared to a market-leading activity monitor (AM).

Effect of prosthetic feet including a torsion-shock adapter in trans-tibial amputee on different terrains

Abstract: This case study presents a method to measure the effect of prosthetic feet including a torsion-shock component using a wireless 6 degree of freedom load cell and 2d camera. Torsion moments of 2 different prosthetic feet are compared for different terrains.
