Multibody systems modeling and optimization problems of lower limb prostheses
Paper i proceeding, 1996
In this paper a mathematical model is proposed for investigating the dynamics of a man's skeletal system (MSS) with a below-knee prosthesis. A MSS is simulated by a plane controlled dynamic system of rigid masses. The controlled motions of the system are described by Lagrange's equations of the second kind, and for the expressions for kineto-static balance of the prosthesis under the action of ankle and metatarsal moments and the forces of reactions are derived. An algorithm is construced for solving the problem of human gait dynamics with a below-knee prosthesis. The series of dynamics problems for multibody biothechnical system "Man-Prosthesis" and optimization of structural parameters of the artificial lower extremity of a man has been solved.
