Item Description: Minimising the energy consumption for a transtibial amputee during the walking process is a complex non-linear, multiple variable optimisation problems. This ground breaking research has, for the first time, proposed a mathematical formulation that will allow studying the influence of experimentally determined roll-over shapes on the walking dynamics of bi-ped robots. The output from this paper has bought together a multidisciplinary team of doctors, sport scientists, patients and UK’s leading prosthetic foot manufacturer, Blatchford, to undertake further experiments in order to develop complex patient specific optimisation models for aligning as well as designing next generation prosthetic feet.
