  • Gait analysis for development of an equine prosthetic

    Good day to everyone,

    I am part of a team currently working on a project to develop a prosthetic
    foot for a 1200 lb walking horse. We have had good sucess finding kinematic
    data of the limb as well as ground reaction-force magnitudes and directions of
    each gait phase. My question is for anyone that is practised in the design of
    lower limb prosthetics: What are our various avenues for using the gait data
    to actually design an end prosthetic in a human?

    We would like to better understand the development process of current human
    ESPF's (such as the Flex-Foot) and adopt the process for our Equine version.
    Anyone willing to share their knowledge would be appreciated, and I would be
    happy to share lots more information about the project.
