- An ankle replacement system that stores and releases energy in a motor-spring complex during gait. The compliant actuator allows Odyssey to provide a natural, fully-powered step.
- The microprocessor-controlled robotic ankle interprets user’s behavior 1,000 times each second to ensure it follows their every move.
- Provides the dismounted soldier a power generation capability that can augment and extend traditional power sources, such as batteries.
- Has shown negligible metabolic cost associated with harvesting ankle energy at slow walking speeds.
- The JackSpring-based ankle offers a powerful, robust, energy efficient solution to the task of human gait assistance.
- This device is self-tunable, compensating for changes in weight or carried load without a visit to a prosthetist.
- A computer-controlled, powered, running prosthesis for transtibial Military amputees. The final version is intended to be a robust walk-run, all terrain, all-weather, quiet device.
- Allows simple removal of active components for occasions when a passive device provides sufficient performance.
