Lecture scientific study/P&O contribution

Lower limb amputee knee mechanics over gradients and the implications for prosthetic design

Short description

Observations of joint kinematics for level and inclined walking indicated that transtibial users were able to adapt swing phase knee flexion during slope ascent, while transfemoral users could not. Reducing prosthetic knee flexion damping on inclines helps to improve ground clearance.
