Abstract:In this work two papers will be presented. The first paper is about modeling a transfemoral prosthesis to create more insight in the energetic behaviour of the prosthesis. The model is obtained in previous work and improved to be able to create this insight. The topic will be further introduced in the paper itself. The second paper describes the design and realisation of a new prototype of the transfemoral prosthesis which is capable to adapt to different walking speeds. An actuator with control system is designed to achieve this adaptive behaviour and first test show the system is working.
