This Phase II STTR proposal continues development and implementation of novel powered prosthetic foot-ankle components for use by military and civilian personnel with lower-limb loss in typical military and civilian environments. A cost-effective, biomimetic, dynamic foot-ankle system is proposed that improves walking speed, gait metabolism, and prosthesis control compared to current passive foot-ankle technologies. Additionally, the system has been developed for use by military and civilian personnel in situations that include stair ascent and descent and uneven sloped terrain.
