The paper presents a model and analysis of a backdrivable knee prosthesis. In this context, the investigation into the design, modelling and analysis of a back-drivable semiactive prosthetic knee is presented. A mathematical model has been developed for evaluating the electrical damping characteristics of the DC motor in passive mode. The analysis shows that a single actuator could be suitable to work in active mode to provide mechanical power and in passive mode as a damper dissipating energy.
