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.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
