Ankle mechanics during sidestep cutting implicates need for 2-degrees of freedom powered ankle-foot prostheses.


The ankle joint of currently available powered prostheses is capable of controlling one degree of freedom (DOF), focusing on improved mobility in the sagittal plane. To increase agility, the requirements of turning in prosthesis design need to be considered. Ankle kinematics and kinetics were studied during sidestep cutting and straight walking. There were… (More)
