A self-contained electronically controlled dynamic knee-brace system (DKBS) has been designed and tested which allows knee flexion during swing phase, but restricts flexion during the stance phase of gait. Cardiovascular energy measurements indicate that DKBS use allowed a more energy efficient gait.
