Purpose

A prosthesis that requires no power, yet has the functionality to perform various tasks, including those needed in the military, is extremely important. To bridge the gap between passive and powered prostheses, this study will test the Compliant Adaptive Energy Storage and Return (CAESAR) foot. The investigators will test and improve this foot design mechanically, and then test this design on individuals with lower limb amputation in a lab setting. The goal of this project is to develop a passive foot that can ultimately provide the user with more normalized biomechanics and function during ambulatory tasks.
