PhD ceremony: Mr. H.G. van Keeken, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Dissertation: Model and measurement studies on stages of prosthetic gait. Predictions on how not to walk symmetrically with a mechanical prosthetic limb

Promotor(s): prof. E. Otten, prof. K. Postema

Faculty: Medical Sciences

In the current thesis, entitled ’Model and measurement studies on stages of prosthetic gait - Predictions on how not to walk symmetrically with a mechanical prosthetic limb’, we used several two dimensional inverse and forward dynamics mathematical models to investigate principles of transfemoral amputee prosthetic gait. For four specific stages of prosthetic gait, namely gait initiation, weight bearing, prosthetic limb swing and gait termination, mathematical models were designed which allowed us to conceptually analyze phenomena observed in the real world.
