Project runs from 09/01/2016 to 08/31/2020
This proposal aims at solving a long-standing problem in the field of prosthetics –lack of inner-socket sensor technology. Due to this limitation, monitoring the inner socket environment (such as socket pressure, moisture, and temperature) is impossible. The proposed textile based multimodal sensor interface will be evaluated in real-time inner socket environment monitoring to enable self-management.
