Author(s): Karl E. Zelik, Steven H. Collins, Peter G. Adamczyk, Ava D. Segal, Glenn K. Klute, David C. Morgenroth, Michael E. Hahn, Michael S. Orendurff, Joseph M. Czerniecki, Arthur D. Kuo
Systematic Variation of Prosthetic Foot Spring Affects Center-of-Mass Mechanics and Metabolic Cost During Walking 1264 855 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Lower-limb amputees expend more energy to walk than non-amputees and have an elevated risk of secondary disabilities. Insufficient push-off by the prosthetic foot may be a contributing factor. We aimed…
