In this paper we follow to elaborate a new prosthetic mechanical system which will substitute the human ankle joint. The new prosthetic mechanical system design, will be accomplished by performing a kinematic analysis on analytical way. The designed prosthetic mechanical system will be experimentally tested on a human subject with locomotion disabilities. 

Design and Numerical Characterization of a Human Ankle Prosthesis

This paper addresses to a finite element analysis in dynamic conditions of a human ankle joint prosthesis based on a cam mechanism design. The proposed ankle joint prosthesis mechanism is a

Nonlinear passive cam-based springs for powered ankle prostheses

This article studies the design of passive elastic elements to reduce the actuator requirements for powered ankle prostheses. The challenge is to achieve most of the typically nonlinear ankle

Design, Optimization and Energetic Evaluation of an Efficient Fully Powered Ankle-Foot Prosthesis With a Series Elastic Actuator

The experiment results show that the optimization of different parameters within the electromechanical model considering the efficiency of the whole drive train can effectively reduce the motor’s peak power to 132 W by making the motor more effective in high-power conditions.

Passive Dynamic Walking

The dynamics are most clearly demonstrated by a machine powered only by gravity, but they can be combined easily with active energy input to produce efficient and dextrous walking over a broad range of terrain.
