Powered Hip Prosthesis

People with an amputation at the hip or pelvis have the most difficulty returning to walking because their artificial limb (prosthesis) must replace the hip, knee, and ankle joints. Current prosthetic hip technologies barely meet the person's needs, leaving these amputees with few options. This project will build from current powered prosthetic knee technology (Össur POWER KNEE) to create a new level of prosthetic technology that powers both the hip and knee.
