Using body worn sensors to assess postural control of lower limb amputees during the modified test if sensory interaction and banalce

Abstract: The use of body worn sensors during balance testing designed to evaluate postural control in four distinct sensory conditions that manipulate the accuracy of visual and somatosensory input can provide information to help guide rehabilitation to improve postural control with lower limb amputees.

Lecture Case Study

Initial results of a clinical study with trauma forefoot amputees: Comparison of gait parameters wearing a customized carbon and a silicon prosthesis.

Abstract: Kinematic and kinetic data were collected on patients using an eight-camera 3D motion analysis system and an instrumented treadmill. Patients wearing the carbon prosthesis showed an increased walking speed, a reduced step length difference, a lowered CoP-shift and a restored forefoot lever.
