Comparison of 3D biomechanical analysis of amputee gait and a mechanical test bench simulation

Christophe Lecomte: State of the art biomechanical analysis of amputee gait for three terrains was compared to a mechanical test bench simulating each task. That allows researchers and prosthetic foot designers to evaluate devices properties on a test bench. That lowers the burden of subject testing

Effects of a prosthetic foot stiffness change on gait

Anna Lára Ármannsdóttir. A novel prosthetic foot was used to explore the effects of a change of stiffness in a prosthetic foot on gait during different gait tasks. Statistically significant differences between stiffness settings were seen for biomechanical measures while subject–specific responses varied to some extent.

Objective measures of performance with implications to inform the iterative design process of prosthetic feet

Oliver Daliet. The aim of this project is to create a standardized testing protocol to evaluate the functionality of a prosthetic foot prototype during user testing. The insights gained from this project may provide useful information for the design of future iterations.
