Abstract

We present a novel swing phase controller for powered transfemoral prostheses based on minimum jerk theory. The proposed controller allows physiologically appropriate swing movement at any walking speed, regardless of the stance controller action. Preliminary validation in a transfemoral amputee subject demonstrates that the proposed controller provides physiological swing timing, without speed-or patient-specific tuning.
