This article evaluates the design of a variable impedance prosthetic (VIPr) socket for a transtibial amputee using computeraided design andmanufacturing (CAD/CAM) processes. [...] Key Method An active bilateral transtibial male amputee of weight 70 kg walked on a force plateYembedded 5-m walkway at self-selected speeds while synchronized ground reaction forces, motion capture data, and socket-residual limb interface pressures were measured for the evaluated sockets. Contact interface pressure recorded (using…Expand
