Different biomechanical variables explain within-subjects versus between-subjects variance in step length asymmetry post-stroke

Author(s): Natalia Sánchez, Nicolas Schweighofer, James M. Finley
Different biomechanical variables explain within-subjects versus between-subjects variance in step length asymmetry post-stroke 150 150 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Step length asymmetry (SLA) is common in most stroke survivors. Several studies have shown that factors such as paretic propulsion can explain between-subjects differences in SLA. However, whether the factors…

Systematic Variation of Prosthetic Foot Spring Affects Center-of-Mass Mechanics and Metabolic Cost During Walking

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…

A Framework of a Lower Limb Musculoskeletal Model With Implemented Natural Proprioceptive Feedback and Its Progressive Evaluation

Author(s): Haotian Zhang, Fuhao Mo, Lizhen Wang, Michel Behr, Pierre-Jean Arnoux
A Framework of a Lower Limb Musculoskeletal Model With Implemented Natural Proprioceptive Feedback and Its Progressive Evaluation 814 716 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)
Proprioceptive senses play an important role in human body reflex and movement, so far implementing physiological mathematical models of proprioceptors in the musculoskeletal model and investigating their effects have not been sufficiently investigated. read more

Inertial Sensor-Based Centripetal Acceleration as a Correlate for Lateral Margin of Stability During Walking and Turning

Author(s): Peter C. Fino, Fay B. Horak, Carolin Curtze
Inertial Sensor-Based Centripetal Acceleration as a Correlate for Lateral Margin of Stability During Walking and Turning 1535 648 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

There is growing interest in using inertial sensors to continuously monitor gait during free-living mobility. Inertial sensors can provide many gait measures, but they struggle to capture the spatial stability…

Mechanisms of Gait Asymmetry Due to Push-Off Deficiency in Unilateral Amputees

Author(s): Peter Gabriel Adamczyk, Arthur D. Kuo
Mechanisms of Gait Asymmetry Due to Push-Off Deficiency in Unilateral Amputees 780 705 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Unilateral lower-limb amputees exhibit asymmetry in many gait features, such as ground force, step time, step length, and joint mechanics. Although these asymmetries result from weak prosthetic-side push-off, there is…
