Smart Prosthesis

Disease, accident and disaster may injure people, even cause disability to them. People who are amputated leg need to take on prosthesis to walk independently. But they need to do much exercise to get used to using it. The Smart Prosthesis may solve this problem well. It is designed into a backpack, with air absorbing component and animating motion system embedded at waist. The embedded parts may compute out moving pattern of the thigh timely and control the hydraulics system to accomplish walking. With the fasten buckle fixed on thigh and the backpack part, it decreases burden of the thigh and makes walking easier.
