A new year, a new SocketSense publication at MDPI

A new publication is added to the SocketSense portfolio, marking an outstanding achievement for 2022. A collaboration between consortium partners, KTH and TWI Hellas, resulted in a paper on the analysis of dynamic operational conditions of limb prosthetic sockets with a Mechatronics-Twin framework.

The study was submitted to the Applied Sciences Journal of MDPI in late November and was published in mid-January as part of the special issue on Mechatronics and Robotics in Vehicle and Medical Applications. The publication has been produced by Dejiu Chen, together with Peng Su, Kaveh Nazem Tahmasebi and Suranjan Ottikkutti from KTH, and Michalis Karamousadakis and Panagiotis Vartholomeos from TWI Hellas.

The article’s focus is on the development of a method for analyzing the dynamic operational conditions in limb prosthetic sockets with the support of a mechatronics-twin framework. A combination of models and ML/AI-based makes it possible to cope effectively with the very strong stochasticity of the dynamics. The advanced biomechanical models and simulations integrated into the mechatronics-twin framework for physical testing offer the opportunity to understand and explore the state space.
