Book Description :

A comprehensive text on the anatomy, pathomechanics, and treatment of the foot and ankle, for students and clinicians. It contains 13 chapters in three sections: biomechanics of the foot and ankle, biomechanical evaluation, and treatment approaches to restore normal movement. This revised and updated edition (first was 1990) deliberates on the concept of the foot as an important part of the lower kinetic chain. Two new chapters have been added, on closed kinetic chain and gait, and on the application of kinetic chain rehabilitation in the lower extremities.

Book Description :

A new dimension in podiatric surgery, a different perspective based on the mathematical "approach" to osteotomies of the forefoot. This is the core of this book which deals with topics that have never been covered in depth in a published format. Professor Ronconi delineates, through excellently crafted diagrams and graphics, as well as an understandable narrative, a more profound way of looking at foot biomechanics than is generally given in texts solely dealing with the subjects of pathomechanics and biomechanics. In addition, there is a very good section on orthopaedic footwear, where Professor Ronconi artfully and effectively condenses a virtual lifetime of experience in the biomechanical effects of orthopaedic footwear into an easy to read and understand chapter. The reader of this book, whether a beginning podiatric medical student or the most experienced foot and ankle surgeon, will find this text both interesting and useful. The reader is given a different perspective of the material -- an insight that is fresh and useful aiding in a more complete understanding of those sometimes difficult concepts.

Book Description :

The goal of my research is to investigate the biomechanical contributions of the human foot to walking. We examined the role of mono- and multi- jointed musculatures across the human ankle and foot during walking through an electromyography-driven musculoskeletal model. We also examined an assumption made in many gait analyses: the entire human foot is a single rigid-body segment. This assumption neglects power generated/absorbed within the foot which can lead to misunderstandings related to (biological and prosthetic) foot function and thus distort our understanding of ankle and underlying muscle-tendon dynamics. Additionally, we examined the contributions of the foot and the shoe versus the rest-of-the-body to the soft tissue energy absorption during early stance of human walking. Lastly, through a custom-designed prosthesis, we examined the role of ankle stiffness, toe joint stiffness, toe shape, foot arch length (from heel to toe joint) and toe length as well as toe joint axis angle to walking biomechanics. This biological and non-biological understanding of the foot can inform design parameters for assistive devices such as prostheses to enhance walking for persons with amputation.

Book Description :

Human motion analysis or gait analysis is used throughout the country and the world in clinics for pre-surgical planning and postsurgical follow-up. Only recently have technological advances truly begun to meet medical needs by supplying more accurate analytical data from which to make educated assessments of dynamic foot and ankle pathology. A comprehensive overview of current and emerging methods is necessary for practitioners to effectively integrate the new techniques into better pre-treatment planning, surgical and rehabilitative care, and post-treatment follow-up. Originating as a one-day workshop sponsored by the Shriner’s Hospitals and the National Institutes of Health, Foot and Ankle Motion Analysis: Clinical Treatment and Technology provides a single source reference for the latest technologies and their clinical applications. With contributions from an international panel of experts from orthopaedic, rehabilitation, engineering, academic, medical-industrial, and clinical disciplines, this text focuses on the relevant scientific advances with an emphasis on applications, limitations, and problems to be solved. Divided into two parts, the text begins by presenting basic and advanced clinical applications and opportunities in foot and ankle motion analysis in both pediatric and adult cases. The second part introduces the technological advances themselves from a quantitative perspective. Modeling concepts, seminal developments, and novel approaches are described along with emerging horizons related to mechanical paradigms, imaging, kinetics, robotics and simulation, tri-planar force sensing, and more. The book also includes a chapter of references and sources of support for future research and development prospects. Clinical and research applications in motion analysis have resulted in better functional assessment, fewer, more effective surgeries, and longer-term follow-up care. Foot and Ankle Motion Analysis: Clinical Treatment and Technology provides a basis for expanding these contributions to the broader community of practitioners caring for both adult and pediatric patients.

Design and Development of a Novel Viscoelastic Ankle foot Prosthesis Based on the Human Ankle Biomechanics

Book Description :

Background and aim: In the present study, a new approach was applied to design and develop a viscoelastic ankle-foot prosthesis. The aim was to replicate the intact ankle moment–angle loop in the normal walking speed. Technique: The moment–angle loop of intact ankle was divided into four parts, and the appropriate models including two viscoelastic units of spring-damper mechanism were considered to replicate the passive ankle dynamics. The developed prototype was then tested on a healthy subject with the amputee gait simulator. The result showed that prosthetic ankle moment–angle loop was similar to that of intact ankle with the distinct four periods. Discussion: The findings suggest that the prototype successfully provided the human ankle passive dynamics. Therefore, the viscoelastic units could imitate the four periods of a normal gait. Clinical relevance: The novel viscoelastic foot prosthesis could provide natural ankle dynamics in a gait cycle. Applying simple but biomechanical approach is suggested in conception of new designs for prosthetic ankle-foot mechanisms.
