Book Description

Prosthetic biomechanics is an interdisciplinary field of engineering, medicine and biology focused on enhancing people's lifestyle. In the past 20 years, the field of prosthetic biomechanics and its potential has grown due to the support of advances in engineering technologies.

Prosthetic Biomechanics in Engineering is about the recent advances in prosthetic engineering research. The scope of the book is focused on the design, development and evaluation of a prosthetic systems that are being used in biomechanical applications. The book covers advanced materials, conceptual design, classification, ergonomics design applications, brain computer interface (BCI) system, motion analysis, postural stand stability, upper and lower limb prosthetics, types of suspension system for prosthetics, fiber Bragg grating based techniques, and pressure on the residual limb and the socket. The chapters also effectively describe new sensors for in-socket systems, new pylon material and advanced gait analysis. Further chapters discuss advanced techniques for the design and development of prosthetics based on clinical and emergency uses.

The information provided in this book is intended for researchers and investigators to encourage further advances in the field of prosthetics research and for the development of rehabilitation equipment for the improvement of human health.
