Dr. Mo Rastgaar and Evandro Ficanha talk about the testing of steerable ankle-foot prosthesis for amputees. An evaluation platform is being developed that consists of a circular treadmill and a gait emulator mechanism. The platform allows for repeatable experiments on the prototype steerable prosthesis with different gait speeds and loads to define a performance criterion for the steerable prostheses, and enable iterative improvements to the design of the prosthesis.
