Flexural

The arch of the prosthetic was put through a bending test to simulate the load and deflection applied when a person is walking.

At the theoretical maximum load of 5x average body weight, 600 pounds, an acceptable deflection of 0.193 inches was found.

The maximum deflection was found to be 0.730 inches at 1457 pounds.
