Unilateral Transtibial Amputee Dynamic Stability Margin During Treadmill Walking
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-04-22)
During human walking the center of mass (COM) oscillates in the vertical and lateral directions as forces are transferred from one foot to the next. As one walks maintaining balance requires keeping the bodies’ COM within ...
Comparison of Liner Assisted Suspensions in Transtibial Prosthetics: A Pilot Study
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-04-28)
Clinical Reliability of a Device for Measuring Forces and Moments in Amputee Gait
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-08)
Practitioners find it difficult to measure forces and moments on a prosthesis when an amputee walks. Traditional measures, such as using force platforms, are expensive and inaccessible. Practitioners also question the ...
Design and Fabrication of a Prosthesis to Test Osseointegration in a Feline Transtibial Model
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-15)
A Static Evaluation of Transtibial Prosthesis Suspension
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-22)
Previously, there have been a number of studies comparing different transtibial suspension methods; however, studies using elevated negative pressure (vacuum) as a suspension method are limited. The purpose of this study ...
