— Almost all of the transtibial prostheses that are available on the market are purely passive devices. They store energy in an elastic element at the beginning of a step and release it at the end in order to move the body forward. The main problem with these prostheses is that only the energy that has been stored in the elastic element is used for the(More)
— Almost all of the transtibial prostheses that are available on the market are purely passive devices. These prostheses store (potential) energy in an elastic element during the controlled dorsiflexion phase of stance and release it right after in order to move the body forward. As a result of this, only the energy which has been stored can be used for(More)
The last decades, rehabilitation has become a challenging context for mechatronical engineering. From the state-of-the-art it is seen that the field of prosthetics offers very promising perspectives to roboticist. Today's prosthetic feet tend to improve amputee walking experience by delivering the necessary push-off forces while walking. Therefore, several(More)
