Ankle-foot orthosis design between the tradition and the computerized perspectives
from The International Journal of Artificial Organs
This study focuses on the drop foot case related to hyperthyroidism of the ankle joint resulting in the relaxation of the toes during walking. This condition requires treatment using an ankle-foot orthosis. Traditional orthosis techniques lack precision and depend on the skill of the fabricator. This research aims to make a bias in ankle-foot orthosis design and analysis methods, where a complete methodology of numerical design and testing has been proposed using advanced engineering software.
