This paper presents an extension of a recently developed low-dimensional modeling approach for normal human gait to the modeling of asymmetric gait. The asymmetric model is applied to analyze the gait dynamics of a transtibial prosthesis user, specifically the changes in joint torque and joint power costs that occur with variations in sagittalplane alignment of the prosthesis, mass distribution of the prosthesis, and roll-over shape of the prosthetic foot being used. The model predicts an increase in cost with addition of mass and a more distal location of the mass, as well as the existence of an alignment at which the costs are minimized. The model's predictions also suggest guidelines for the selection of prosthetic feet and suitable alignments. The results agree with clinical observations and results of other gait studies reported in the literature. The model can be a useful analytical tool for more informed design and selection of prosthetic components, and provides a basis for making the alignment process systematic. Copyright © 2009 by ASME.
