    Aloha,

    Great research topic and results.

    My only recommendation to improve the flexion strength during running gait would be to utilize advanced composite carbon fiber spring plates instead of rubberized flex bands since they have a higher modulus of elasticity.

    Composites have had great success handling the loads required in our prosthetics. Why not use them in our orthotics as well??

    Mahalo,
