Biomechanics

   A Comprehensive Understanding of Amputee Biomechanics

Available prosthetic legs are built using dynamic models based able-bodied biomechanics. Thus, they cannot take into account the specific gait adaptations used by individuals with amputations. As a result, the function of the available prosthetic legs is suboptimal. To address this limitation, we aim to collect a comprehensive biomechanics dataset by recording how prosthesis users walk across wide ranges of speed and cadence while using different prosthetic technologies. This dataset will encompass 10 full-community ambulators and 10 limited-community ambulators as they walk at 5 different speeds. The dataset will be made fully available to the scientific community.  For this project, we are collaborating with Prof. Foreman, PT, Ph.D. in the Department of Physical Therapy & Athletic Training.
