Poster 31: Andrew Gunnell – Gait Analysis of Amputee Subjects While Wearing Microprocessor Knee Prostheses

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Tommaso Lenzi

My hypothesis is that by understanding how amputees walk on their passive prostheses, we can then improve the control strategies of powered prostheses. The limitations of passive knee prosthetics suggest that research in the area of powered prosthetics has the potential to provide a significant impact in improving amputee biomechanical symmetry by reducing the need for compensatory movements.
