Innovation for Powered Prostheses Utilizing Pneumatic Actuators Book Review:

This dissertation presents novel innovation within the field of powered prostheses with particular emphasis on the control of pneumatic actuators and the design and control of powered prostheses. For the first work presented in Chapter 3, a pressure estimation algorithm is developed for a force controlled pneumatic cylinder. The algorithm provides the required chamber pressure information via the measurement of the actuation force and by establishing an average pressure derived from the inflow-outflow balance of the actuator. For the force controller design, the dynamic model of the entire system is presented, and the standard sliding mode control approach is applied to obtain a robust control law. The pressure estimation algorithm and the corresponding robust control approach have been implemented on an experimental system, and the effectiveness demonstrated by the sinusoidal and square-wave force tracking. Chapter 4 presents the simultaneous position and stiffness control of a pneumatic artificial muscle actuation system. In order to develop such a controller, the full nonlinear dynamic model of the system is developed in the work. Given the dynamic model, a robust multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) sliding mode controller is implemented to control the system. The simultaneous position and stiffness controller is then implemented experimentally, and the effectiveness is demonstrated for sinusoidal tracking of both the position and stiffness. A modified design of the pneumatic artificial muscle in order to improve the force output and reduce the energy consumption of the muscle is presented in Chapter 5. Theoretical analysis of the force gains and the possible reduced energy consumption is given. The theoretical analysis of the improved force output and improved efficiency as well as the overall hypothesis of the work is then validated experimentally. Chapter 6 presents the design and control of a prosthetic elbow prototype using the modified pneumatic artificial muscle design presented in Chapter 5. The elbow was designed to provide adequate flexion torque of the elbow, while a set of rotary springs allow for extension of the joint. In order to control the prototype, the full nonlinear dynamic model of the system is developed. Given the model, a single-input-single-output robust sliding mode controller is implemented for the control of the system. The robust controller is then implemented experimentally and the effectiveness is demonstrated for a step input and sinusoidal tracking of the elbow joint angle. The final chapter of this dissertation presents the design of a powered transfemoral prosthetic leg. The design of both the powered ankle and knee joint incorporates a new actuation design for each of the joints. Each of the joint actuation systems are fully optimized to provide adequate torque for various modes of ambulation of the prosthetic leg. Finally, the detailed design of the prosthesis prototype is given in Chapter 7.

The Promise of Assistive Technology to Enhance Activity and Work Participation Book Review:

The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that 56.7 million Americans had some type of disability in 2010, which represents 18.7 percent of the civilian noninstitutionalized population included in the 2010 Survey of Income and Program Participation. The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. As of December 2015, approximately 11 million individuals were SSDI beneficiaries, and about 8 million were SSI beneficiaries. SSA currently considers assistive devices in the nonmedical and medical areas of its program guidelines. During determinations of substantial gainful activity and income eligibility for SSI benefits, the reasonable cost of items, devices, or services applicants need to enable them to work with their impairment is subtracted from eligible earnings, even if those items or services are used for activities of daily living in addition to work. In addition, SSA considers assistive devices in its medical disability determination process and assessment of work capacity. The Promise of Assistive Technology to Enhance Activity and Work Participation provides an analysis of selected assistive products and technologies, including wheeled and seated mobility devices, upper-extremity prostheses, and products and technologies selected by the committee that pertain to hearing and to communication and speech in adults.

Advances in Applied Electromyography Book Review:

The electrical activity of the muscles, as measured by means of electromyography (EMG), is a major expression of muscle contraction. This book aims at providing an updated overview of the recent developments in electromyography from diverse aspects and various applications in clinical and experimental research. It consists of ten chapters arranged in four sections. The first section deals with EMG signals from skeletal muscles and their significance in assessing biomechanical and physiologic function and in applications in neuro-musculo-skeletal rehabilitation. The second section addresses methodologies for the treatment of the signal itself: noise removal and pattern recognition for the activation of artificial limbs. The third section deals with utilizing the EMG signals for inferring on the mechanical action of the muscle, such as force, e.g., pinching force in humans or sucking pressure in the cibarial pump during feeding of the hematophagous hemiptera insect. The fourth and last section deals with the clinical role of electromyograms in studying the pelvic floor muscle function.

Advances for Prosthetic Technology Book Review:

This book focuses on the advances in transtibial prosthetic technology and targets research in the evolution of the powered prosthesis such as the BiOM, which was derived from considerable research and development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The concept of the book spans the historical evolution of prosthetic applications from passive to new and futuristic robotic prosthetic technologies. The author describes the reasons for amputation, surgical procedures, and an historical perspective of the prosthesis for the lower limb. He also addresses the phases and sub-phases of gait and compensatory mechanisms arising for a transtibial prosthesis and links the compensatory mechanisms to long-term morbidities. The general technologies for gait analysis central to prosthetic design and the inherent biomechanics foundations for analysis are also explored. The book reports on recent-past to current-term applications with passive elastic prostheses. The core of the book deals with futuristic robotic prostheses including their function and major subsystems, such as actuator technology, state machine control, and machine learning applications. Finally, the envisioned future trends in the prosthetic technology space are presented.

Kinematic Modeling for Control of Agile Powered Prosthetic Legs Over Continuously Varying Speeds and Inclines Book Review:

People with above knee amputations face many unique challenges during their activities of daily living. Conventional passive prosthetic legs are not optimal for the range of ambulation tasks amputee users face daily, including walking at varied speeds and inclines, which hampers amputee mobility in the community and quality of life. Powered knee and ankle prosthetic legs have the potential to improve quality of by providing actuators that can perform net positive work at the knee and ankle, reducing the work required from the wearer and making more tasks possible. However, the controllers for these devices are limited to a small set of pre-defined tasks that require many hours of tuning for each user. The ubiquitous use of discrete task-specific controllers follows from the prevailing paradigm of viewing human locomotion as a discrete set of activities. The overall goal of this dissertation is to model human locomotion over continuously varying speeds and inclines to help realize the design of agile, powered prostheses without discrete task controllers. There is a fundamental gap in knowledge about how to analyze and model continuously varying locomotion, which greatly limits the adaptability and agility of powered prostheses. The central hypothesis of this dissertation is that the knee and ankle kinematics for a continuous interval of speeds and inclines can be parameterized by a continuous mathematical model based on gait phase, walking speed, and incline alone. We have formulated a convex optimization framework to solve for the optimal parameters of this continuous model from a discrete experimental sampling of human kinematics during a variety of tasks. Using quasi-random phase shifting perturbations during a variety of walking inclines, we have investigated if a single phase variable can be used to accurately parameterize gait for a range of powered prosthetic leg applications. We then determined the degree to which sensors onboard the prosthesis can accurately measure walking speed and incline, and evaluate how the accuracy of these measurements affects the model0́9s ability to accurately predict joint kinematics for a number of users and conditions. This dissertation is scientifically significant to understanding how humans continuously adapt to speed and slope, technologically significant to the design of agile variable-activity prosthetic legs, and clinically significant to the adoption of powered prostheses that enable community ambulation for lower-limb amputees.
