Sorry, we do not have enough data to show an influence graph for this author.
This study extends what had been a purely numerical model that used influence-factor matrices to relate the stump stresses to prosthesis loads for unilateral, below/knee amputees. Previously published influence-factor matrices are now factored into a coefficient matrix times the inverse of a stump geometry matrix. Using actual stump parameters, new… (More)
Mechanical energy expenditure during level walking was evaluated and graphed for two unilateral, below-knee amputees over time and a range of adjustments of the flexion-extension alignment angle. The resulting mechanical energy surfaces were then least-squared fitted with an analytical function that was linear in time and quadratic in flexion-extension… (More)
