Load during prosthetic gait : is direct measurement better than inverse dynamics?
Dumas, Raphael, Cheze, Laurence, & Frossard, Laurent A. (2009) Load during prosthetic gait : is direct measurement better than inverse dynamics? In European Society of Movement Analysis in Adults and Children (ESMAC) 18th Annual General Meeting, 14-19 Sept 2009, Savoy Place, London.
The knee forces and moments estimated by inverse dynamics and directly measured by a multiaxial transducer were compared during the gait of a transfemoral amputee. The estimated and directly measured forces and moments were relatively close. However, 3D inverse dynamics estimated only partially the forces and moments associated with the deformation of the prosthetic foot and locking of knee mechanism.
