Product Description
Product Details

Table of Contents

Amputations and prostheses, a topic of global concern.- Ankle-foot complex and the fundamental aspects of gait.- Prosthetic gait asymmetry and discomfort while walking with a transtibial prosthesis.- Testing and evaluation strategies for the powered prosthesis, a global perspective.- Passive transtibial prosthesis and associated prosthetic components.- Energy Storage and Return (ESAR) prosthesis.- Architecture of a powered prosthesis system: actuators, sensors, and control.- Transtibial powered prostheses: single and dual actuator configurations.- The MIT inspired powered prosthesis leading to the commercialized BiOM powered prosthesis, a precedence in transtibial prosthetic technology.- Future and advanced concepts for the powered prosthesis.


"The book aims to define the broad knowledge base required to inform research on transtibial prosthetic management. ... a fair job of surveying a considerable body of knowledge and presenting it in an easily readable manner appropriate for engineers and biomechanists new to the transtibial prosthetic patient population. While the vast majority of prosthetic-oriented books focus on their clinical aspects, the engineering and research focus of this one likely will appeal to those working in academic and product development settings." (Christopher Robinson, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
