Within a larger project aiming at increasing technology in sports, Imec is looking at adding sensors to prosthetic gait. In this project you would add sensors to a running blade in prosthetic users. You would setup the experiments, test the hardware and perform the experiments. From the sensors you would estimate the deformation of the prosthesis and relate this to other gait parameters like symmetry and running efficiency. Eventually we would like to see if the sensors can be used to optimize the settings of the blade for its individual user and thereby increase the performance.
