Congress Lecture

Evaluation of exoprosthetic knee joint systems based on an analysis of three components of the floor reaction force

Abstract: Ziel dieser Studie ist es mithilfe der instrumentellen Ganganalyse Möglichkeiten für einen objektiven Vergleich verschiedener exoprothetischer Gelenksysteme zu schaffen. Die verwendeten Parameter werden aus den drei Komponenten der Bodenreaktionskraft berechnet.

Congress Lecture

Development of a turning task test-protocol which reflects an every day situation to observe effects of torsion adapter in amputees

Abstract: This study was performed to establish a test set-up to monitor the effect of torsion cells in prosthetic feet. A cued turning task test was developed and different timing was tested. Basic turning strategies are determined and the best possible cuing time for amputees is determined.

Congress Lecture

Biomechanics of sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit movements in unilateral transfemoral amputees using powered and non-powered prosthetic knees

Abstract: During sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit movements, powered prosthetic knee resulted in greater weight distribution symmetry between intact and prosthetic limbs, compared to a microprocessor controlled non-powered knee. Active power generation by the knee is advantageous for these functional activities

Congress Lecture

Verification of electrical drives and validation of their dynamic performance in rehabilitation equipment

Abstract: Developing of high efficient actively powered prosthesis depends on the correct design and selection of different components from various technical fields. A fully automated experimental test bench is developed to facilitate a comprehensive analysis of different components.

Three dimensional rollover characteristics of prosthetic feet measured on the gait simulated loading device

Abstract: To quantify the dynamic gait characteristics of prosthetic feet, we have developed the measuring method of three dimensional locus of force contact point on foot-sole under the fixed stance phase loading from heel contact to toe-off generated by the testing device based on ISO22675 standard.
