Running Specific Prosthesis (RSP) allow amputee sprinters to compare to the best able-bodied sprinters in the world. In RSP research, the current state of the art mainly focusses on highly detailed analysis of discrete moments in the sprint, but more data of the entire sprint process in terms of RSP characteristics and sprinting technique are...

Running-specific prostheses enable amputee athletes to perform at the highest level. However, current prosthesis design still impairs sprinting performance in multiple ways. An example is the constant mechanical stiffness of the prosthetic devices. The dynamic behaviour of the blade is determined by this property, but it is static and cannot...

The purpose of this thesis project is to design a new concept of sprinting prosthesis to enhance the acceleration phase performance of bilateral transtibial amputees (BTAs) competing in sprinting races. Amputee sprinters are hampered in the acceleration phase of a sprint race by the compliance of their prostheses. Increased contact times, and...
