Forces acting on the body via various external surfaces during locomotion are needed to support the body under gravity, control posture, and overcome inertia. Examples include the forces acting on the body via the seating surfaces during wheelchair propulsion, the forces acting on the plantar foot tissues via the insole during gait, and the forces acting on the residual-limb tissues via the prosthetic socket during various movement activities. Excessive exposure to unwarranted stresses at the… CONTINUE READING
