Abstract [en]

This master’s thesis project “Instrumentation of Gait Analysis” was carried out at and funded by Integrum AB, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Force analysis is critical during rehabilitation process of amputation patients, since overloading might place the bone-implant interface at risk; while underloading might extend unnecessarily the already long rehabilitation program [1]. Highly developed sensor and data acquisition technology provides an easy and reliable way to do force analysis. This thesis introduces the problem and provides background material regarding Orthotics and Prosthetics, including osseointegration. The existing gait analysis techniques and sensor technology will be described. Based upon the criteria that are introduced, a suitable sensor and integration platform was selected to implement a new gait analysis system. Several trials of different gait states are proposed using the prototype to do gait analysis, the results are presented and analyzed. The success of this prototype has lead to plans to design an Osseointegrated Prostheses for the Rehabilitation of Amputees(OPRA) product
