  Translational Control Design for Lower-Limb Prosthetics  
(Lectures/Talks)

"Translational Control Design for Lower-Limb Prosthetics: Lessons from Robot Locomotion"

Robert D. Gregg IV, Ph.D., UT Dallas

Breakthroughs in robot control theory present an emerging opportunity to address a key roadblock in prosthetic and orthotic control technology. I will provide evidence that the Center of Pressure (COP) in the plantar sole serves as a phase variable in human locomotion, by which the neuromuscular system represents the phase of the gait cycle. Recent experiments with above-knee amputee subjects using a powered prosthetic leg will be presented and future research directions will be discussed.
