Structural analysis of solid ankle-foot orthoses

D. Leone; S. Diemente; S. Gustave; M. Lopez-Isa Proceedings of the 1988 Fourteenth Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 1988

The results of a structural analysis of an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) using beam theory with results from a three-dimensional finite-element analysis are compared. Analytical results are then compared to data obtained from a controlled load test of an AFO. Conclusions drawn indicate that while beam theory accurately predicts overall reflections, the finite-element analysis correctly locates compression zones where local buckling ...

A new hybrid spring brake orthosis for controlling hip and knee flexion in the swing phase

S. Gharooni; B. Heller; M. O. Tokhi IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, 2001

It is proposed that active contraction of muscles might be artificially replaced by a spring brake orthosis (SBO) to provide near-natural knee and hip swing phase trajectories for gait in spinal cord injured subjects. The SBO is a new gait restoration system in which stored spring elastic energy and potential energy of limb segments are utilized to aid gait. It ...
