This project aimed to investigate the different experimental methods currently utilized for determining the stiffness of polypropylene AFOs. The experimental procedure had two aims: to fabricate an artificial leg suitable for the stiffness testing of an AFO, and to measure the stiffness of an AFO with/without the presence of the leg by means of different stiffness-measuring methods.
