    A spatial electrocutaneous display for sensory substitution is being designed. The display will be used to feed back sensory signals from transfemoral prostheses to amputees. The aim is to improve their walking performance. Two experiments have been performed to optimise the display parameters for dynamic, cyclic signals, which are common during walking. From these experiments it became clear that healthy subjects were capable of discerning artificially generated disturbed knee angle patterns from undisturbed patterns. This shows that the electrocutaneous display has the capability to feed back signals from a transfemoral prosthesis.
