The field of control of powered lower-leg prostheses has advanced due to the improvements in sensors and computational power. Much effort has been done to improve the capabilities of prostheses, such as mimicking the stiffness, weight, and mobility of a human ankle-foot [1] and autonomously commanding the robotic prosthesis for gait [2].
