Its all about the decisions

Posted on

In this stage of the project, one of the main focuses is the development of a Decision Support System (DSS), led by TWI Hellas. This DSS outputs suggestions for rectification action to the prosthetist, aiming to improve the fitness of transfemoral prosthetic socket design. To accomplish this, we employ fuzzy-logic and rectification state-of-the-art algorithms that […]

The SocketSense Pilot Study

Posted on

A first fully integrated prototype of the SocketSense system was successfully trialled with a transfemoral amputee, at Össur, Iceland in January 2021. The trial took place under IRB approval, and in the presence of a certified prosthetist. The primary aim of the study was to verify the practicality of the SocketSense system in real-life application […]
