Three newly-funded Vanderbilt research projects center around the goal of improving mobility and long-term healthÂ for lower-limb prosthetic users.Â The projects cover both powered and passive prosthetic limbs, and combine technology development with biomechanics and motion analysis assessments. The individual projects areÂ
The Vanderbilt arm is the most unconventional of three prosthetic arms under development by a Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) program. The other two are being designed by researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore who head the program. Those arms are powered by batteries and electric motors. The program is also supporting teams of neuroscientists at the University of Utah, California Institute of Technology, and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago who are developing advanced methods for controlling the arms by connecting them to nerves in the users’ bodies or brains.

The prosthesis was tested on a 21-year-old male (1.93 m, 70 kg) unilateral amputee, three years post amputation. The length of the test subject’s residual limb, measured from the greater trochanter to the amputated site, was 55% of the length of the non-impaired side measured from the greater trochanter to the lateral epicondyle. The subject uses an Ottobock C-leg with a Freedom Renegade prosthetic foot for daily use. The subject’s daily use socket was used for the experiments, where the powered prosthesis prototype was attached in place of the daily use prosthesis. The overall prosthesis height adjustment and varus-valgus alignment were performed by a licensed prosthetist. The study described herein was approved by the Vanderbilt Institutional Review Board, and the subject signed an informed consent prior to participation in the study.
