About

Lower-limb running-specific prostheses (RSPs) are constructed of carbon-fibre to enable energy storage and return during the stance phase of running. For my doctoral thesis I am developing a combined finite element and musculoskeletal model to more accurately describe RSP dynamic behaviour. The newly developed methodologies will allow amputee running and sprinting to be analysed and simulated without using the existing shank-ankle-foot rigid-body mechanics model to describe prosthesis behaviour.
