An ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) is often prescribed to patients with instability or weakness in the lower leg to assist plantarflexion or dorsiflexion [1]. A limited number of studies focuses on the optimal stiffness of the AFO. It is known that excessive AFO stiffness introduces buckling in the knee [1]. It would be desirable to have the ability to predict(More)
In below-knee amputee (bka) gait, many studies report a lower peak knee extension moment in the residual leg, compared to the intact leg and able-bodied gait. Belowknee amputees have a fully functioning knee in their residual leg, so they should be able to have a normal knee moment, which might reduce the high incidence rate of ostheoarthritis in the intact(More)
Despite having a fully functional knee and hip in both legs, asymmetries in joint moments of the knee and hip are often seen in gait of persons with a unilateral transtibial amputation (TTA), possibly resulting in excessive joint loading. We hypothesize that persons with a TTA can walk with more symmetric joint moments at the cost of increased effort or(More)
