Running Powered Ankle-Foot Prostheses

Studying the effects of prostheses on gait, such as running, allows us to understand how the technologies we develop affect the users.   Leg stiffness of sprinters using running-specific prostheses Running-specific prostheses (RSF) are designed to replicate the spring-like nature of biological legs (bioL) during running. However, it...

Powered Ankle-Foot Prostheses

The Biomechatronics Group is studying the clinical effects of powered transtibial prostheses on transtibial amputee gait.   Bionic ankle-foot prosthesis normalizes walking gait for persons with leg amputation Over time, leg prostheses have improved in design, but have been incapable of actively adapting to different walking velocities in a...
