Abstract

In this study, the Working Model simulation software program was used to determine the Instant Axis of Rotation (IAR) path of the prosthesis for stance and swing phase operation. Key aspects of the prototype were stable, safe knee flexion during weight bearing, improved energy expenditure of the residual hip muscles, and a natural swinging motion.
