Adaptive Robotic SocketPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Although prosthetic socket technology has been rapidly advancing, amputees are still concerned that their socket and prosthetic are not adaptive to their current activity or consistently comfortable. The goal of our project was to design a prototype of an above-knee adaptive prosthetic socket that responded to an amputee’s movement and physiological signals to alleviate pressure on the residual limb during daily activities. The device adjusted multiple air-filled bladders appropriately when the user was standing, sitting, and walking.
