Biomechanics of individuals with limb loss

This project aims at developing biomechanical tools and improving basic knowledge of the locomotion of individuals with lower limb loss fitted with a socket or an osseointegrated fixation during key stages of the rehabilitation and activities of daily living.

As a leader of this project, I am responsible for all academic developments, such as: seeking funds, publishing the outcomes, bringing experts, training students, sharing the outcomes within and outside academia, etc.


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..

Population

The PROTAMINE project is mainly focusing on individuals with lower limb loss and more particularly on individuals with transfemoral amputation fitted with a socket or an osseointegrated fixation. Individuals with amputation fitted bone-anchored p..

Instruments

The PROTAMINE project relies on the direct measurements of the forces and moments applied on the three axes of the residuum of individuals with limb loss. The unique way to assess kinetic parameters was made possible by putting together a wea..
