I am a researcher in the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at Sydney
University. Currently, I am working on the design of a weight-relieving
lower-limb orthosis for people who have flaccid paralysis of their lower-limbs.

Can anyone direct me to a good source of current information on this subject
as most of the literature that I have managed to obtain dates back to the
1970's and tends to be non-specific. Perhaps someone has worked on a similar
project or has information relating to;
-Finite Element Analysis of lower limb orthotic, in particular, ischial
bearing calipers.
-straight legged gait data
-orthotic knee articulation devices

Thanks in advance
