Samenvatting

In this chapter, we discuss the design of the CYBERLEGs Beta-Prosthesis developed by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). This transfemoral prosthesis consists of compliant actuators which provide full support torques to the ankle and knee during level ground walking. To deliver an energy-efficient and compact system, the springs are combined with locking elements, and a mechanism is introduced to transfer energy from the knee to the ankle during push off. The performance of the prosthesis is evaluated by comparing bench tests to experiments with an amputee.
