Differentiation between solid-ankle cushioned heel and energy storage and return prosthetic foot based on step-to-step transition cost

Daphne Wezenberg, PhD, et al.

We compared the effect of two often-prescribed prosthetic feet on the energy lost during the transition from one step to the next. Results showed that the so-called energy storage and return prosthetic feet lost less energy during this transition than solidankle cushioned heel prosthetic feet. These results contribute to our understanding of the difference in mechanical properties of both feet. Moreover, they provide important information that helps to optimize the development of new and more efficient prostheses.
