Abstract

This paper aims to classify the phase of gait for passive transfemoral prostheses as a preliminary study for the development of a knee flexion angle control device in prosthetics by attaching it to the knee joint in order to produce a walk trajectory like a normal person, while walking on a flat. However, it is not possible to determine a gait stage according to the inflection point of a knee, since there are few angular changes in the knee joint in the form of a seat that will support the body. Thus, in previous studies, algorithms were developed to distinguish between three stages of the stance in the swing phase using a decision tree learning method. However, the decision-making tree is prone to overfitting. This can be a high level of accuracy for training data, but it is difficult to generalize when verification data or new data are entered. Therefore, in this paper, we want to develop an algorithm for preventing the overfitting step-by-step using two different methods.
