People with a lower leg prosthetic miss the ‘feeling’ in this part of their body. With the Sonostapp audio-feedback system they hear through sound signals in their smartphone how they are distributing their weight, the burden they are placing on their prosthetic. Users are able to improve their balance when walking, they are more mobile and, as a result, more socially active.
