Abstract

A bioengineering protocol is established based on gait analysis, viscoelastic characterizations, and biomaterial analyses to study temporal variations in the structure-function relationships of insole materials. There was a very strong correlation between the in vivo gait parameter measurements and in vitro material studies. After validation of this novel methodology with other viscoelastic materials, it will be possible to develop an instrument that can be used by physicians to determine if insole materials and prosthetic materials have failed.
