How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Most biomechanical research has focused on level-ground walking giving less attention to other conditions. As a result, most lower limb prosthesis studies have focused on sagittal plane movements. In this paper, an ESR foot is presented, of which five different stiffnesses were optimized for as many weight categories of users. It is characterized b...
This paper focuses on the development and validation of a generic musculoskeletal model of an osseointegrated transfemoral amputee. The model has been developed using OpenSim with the final goal of obtaining a competent tool to study and better understand the biomechanics of osseointegrated transfemoral amputees. The model has been validated on the...
This study aims to perform analysis simulation study on healthy-subject gait cycle by zeroing the major plantar flexor (PF) muscles strength in order to perceive the effects on knee and hip muscles/joints. The results showed high compensation from knee and hip joint forces/moments. In addition, a two-sample t-test showed a significant difference in...
