Overview

Created in 1999, the project of research PROTAMINE (PROsthetics TeleAmbulatory Monitoring In a Natural Environment) focuses on the biomechanical aspects of the locomotion of individuals with lower limb loss, with a particular emphasis on the load applied on the residuum during rehabilitation and activities of daily living.

This website and a newsletter are the main internal and external communication tools of this project.

This website is primarily a depository of the lists of studies, team members, collaborations, grants, publications and impacts.

Nonetheless, it also includes information associated with the on-going developments through news, links and synopsis.

It is designed for a range of readers including the participants of the project, professionals involved into the locomotion of individuals with lower limb amputation fitted with a socket or osseointegrated fixation, and individuals with a keen interest in all aspects of biomechanics.
