BACKGROUND Novel powered prosthetic ankles currently incorporate finite state control, using kinematic and kinetic sensors to differentiate stance and swing phases/sub-phases and control joint impedance and position or torque. For more intuitive control, myoelectric control of the ankle using the remnant residual limb dorsiflexors and plantarflexors,(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to quantify the structural strength of various trans-tibial composite sockets. To conduct the study, loading parameters and methods were developed that emulate the International Standards Organisation (ISO) standards for structural testing of lower limb prostheses since specific guidelines for the testing of the(More)
BACKGROUND Those who experience lower extremity weakness or paralysis following a stroke often exhibit gait deviations caused by the inability to completely lift their foot during swing. An ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) is commonly prescribed for individuals post stroke with this mobility impairment. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. OBJECTIVES To(More)
