Biomechanical basis of choosing the rational mass and its distribution throughout the lower limb prosthesis segments.


A solution for finding a rational distribution of mass in lower limb prostheses has been considered based on the formal premise favoring the identification of the movements of a prosthetic and an intact leg. For the purpose of simplicity, and analysis has been carried out for only the swing phase, the data about the properties of moving segments being… (More)
