To get off on the right foot in 2022, the SocketSense team secured participation at this year’s Biodevices, the 15th International Conference on Biomedical Electronics Devices, hosted between the 9th-11th of February. It seems like the new year will also provide interesting opportunities to spread the word about our project and its newest developments.
More specifically, DeJiu Chen, Suranjan Ram Ottikkutti and Kaveh Nazem Tahmaseb, members of KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology, have produced the accepted SocketSense paper. It revolves around the design of a Mechatronics-Twin Framework based on Stewart Platform for an effective exploration of the operational behaviors of prosthetic sockets with amputees. The mechatronics-twin framework can support a variety of configurations and record the intra-socket load conditions for sensor testing and design optimization. The KTH team will present the publication, and supportive videos will accompany the research findings.
Overall, the event is expected to bring together researchers and practitioners from the fields of engineering, physics, and electronics. Particular attention is paid to projects that promote the development, research and implementation of new materials, devices and systems imitating biological systems or setting biomedical standards. Thus, the SocketSense Horizon 2020 initiative, as part of wearable biodevices, will likely commence a fruitful discussion around its biomechanical modeling and simulation results.
