Journal Article
Etoundi, A. C., Dobner, A., Agrawal, S., Semasinghe, C. L., Georgilas, I., & Jafari, A. (2022). A robotic test rig for performance assessment of prosthetic joints. Frontiers in Robotics and AI, 8, https://doi.org/10.3389/frobt.2021.613579

Movement within the human body is made possible by joints connecting two or more elements of the musculoskeletal system. Losing one or more of these connections can seriously limit mobility, which in turn can lead to depression and other mental issue...
