Stresses on the surface of a stump within a prosthetic socket during walking can potentially traumatize stump tissues. To gain insight into stresses and design parameters that affect them, normal and shear interface stresses were measured on three unilateral trans-tibial amputee subjects during walking trials. During stance phase repeated characteristics in wave-form shapes from different subjects were apparent. They included "loading delays", "high frequency events (HFE's)", "first peaks… CONTINUE READING
