Quadrupedal locomotion with a unilateral bone-anchored transtibial prosthesis in the cat
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-11-10)
Bone-anchored limb prostheses offer numerous advantages over conventional socket-supported prostheses. As opposed to socket prostheses, loads on a bone-anchored prosthetic limb during natural activities are directly ...
Adaptation of locomotor control in able and impaired human walking
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-06-13)
Extensive research has documented the stereotypical kinematic and kinetic patterns in healthy human walking, but we have a limited understanding of the neuromechanical control principles that contribute to their execution. ...
Motor control in persons with a trans-tibial amputation during cycling
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-06)
Motor control of any movement task involves the integration of neural, muscular and skeletal systems. This integration must occur throughout the sensorimotor system and focus its efforts on controlling the system endpoint, ...
Promoting enhanced motor planning in prosthesis users via matched limb imitation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-03-13)
As of 2005, there were over 1.5 million amputees living in the United States, more than 548,000 of them with upper extremity involvement. The total number of amputees is projected to rise to at least 2.2 million by 2020. ...
