Design of an open-source transfemoral, bypass socket
The development of control algorithms and prosthetic hardware for lower limb prostheses involves an iterative testing process. Here, we present the design and validation of a bypass socket to enable able-bodied researchers to wear a leg prosthesis for evaluation purposes. The bypass socket can be made using a 3D-printer and standard household tools. It has an open-socket design that allows for electromyography recordings. It was designed for people with a height of 160 - 190 cm and extradoi:10.1109/embc46164.2021.9630984 pmid:34892235 fatcat:hsycrletifgsjdvv3oy2sgclyq
