- Significance of non-level walking on transtibial prosthesis fitting with particular reference to the effects of anterior-posterior alignment. Sin, S.W.; Chow, Daniel H.K.; Cheng, Jack C.Y. // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;Jan/Feb2001, Vol. 38 Issue 1, p1
Abstract--Despite the fact that non-level walking is known to be important for prosthesis fitting, its clinical significance has not been investigated. In this study, the acceptable prosthesis alignment ranges of six subjects with transtibial amputation on level and non-level walking were...
- Normal and shear stresses on a residual limb in a prosthetic socket during ambulation... Sanders, Joan E.; Daly, Colin H. // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;1993, Vol. 30 Issue 2, p191
Develops and evaluates a computer-based model of the residual limb and socket to predict interface normal stresses and shear stresses on below-knee amputees during ambulation. Subjects and procedures; Results; Relevance.

Presents an abstract of the study `Static Versus Dynamic Prosthetic Weight Bearing in Elderly Trans-Tibial Amputees,' by M. E. Jones, J. R. Steel, et al., from the `Prosthetics and Orthotics International' dated 1997.
- Dynamic interface pressure distributions of two transtibial prosthetic socket concepts. Dumbleton, Tim; Buis, Arjan W. P.; McFadyen, Angus; McHugh, Brendan F.; McKay, Geoff; Murray, Kevin D.; Sexton, Sandra // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;2009, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p405
In this study, we investigated and compared the dynamic interface pressure distribution of hands-off and handson transtibial prosthetic systems by means of pressure mapping. Of the 48 established unilateral amputees recruited, half (n = 24) had been wearing pressure-cast prostheses (IceCast...
- An Upper-Limb Power-Assist Exoskeleton Using Proportional Myoelectric Control. Zhichuan Tang; Kejun Zhang; Shouqian Sun; Zenggui Gao; Lekai Zhang; Zhongliang Yang // Sensors (14248220);Apr2014, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p6677
We developed an upper-limb power-assist exoskeleton actuated by pneumatic muscles. The exoskeleton included two metal links: a nylon joint, four size-adjustable carbon fiber bracers, a potentiometer and two pneumatic muscles. The proportional myoelectric control method was proposed to control...
