Dr Mohammed Awad
Research Fellow in the School of Mechanical Engineering who was awarded a PhD in 2012 from the University of Leeds by developing biomechatronic above knee prosthetic device based on dynamic coupling effect. He was awarded a research fellow position to participate in Smart bioLeg project and continue working in lower limb prostheses. Prostheses stability and comfort are so critical for amputees, and this could be provided through a well-constructed socket and prosthesis. Efficient design and control of lower limb prostheses decreases the unwanted pressures on the residual limb and provide amputees with comfort and confidence. In the smart bioleg project, they are seeking to advance technologies that could improve amputee mobility and help to develop self-adaptable lower limb prosthetics with energy recovery.
