Prototype powered ankle prosthesis improves biomechanical outcomes for trans-tibial amputees

Description

A prototype powered ankle prosthesis was fitted to a cohort of trans-tibial amputees. Gait analysis was used to measure the biomechanical effects when external power was applied at specific points in the gait cycle. Powered movement increased prosthetic toe clearance and reduced sound limb loading.
