    The objectives of this study were to (1) record the inner-prosthesis loading during activities of daily living (ADLs), (2) present a set of variables comparing loading data, and (3) provide an example of characterization of two prostheses. The load was measured at 200 Hz using a multi-axial...

    This study identified which residual-limb quality factors are related to functional mobility 1 year after transtibial (TT) amputation. A group of 28 TT amputees were evaluated with respect to their functional mobility (Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire [PEQ], Locomotor Index, Timed Up and Go...

    This investigation compared stance, swing, and double support times of a recent below-the-knee amputee (BKA) child's gait with the gait of normal children and with that of experienced BKA children. Kinematic data were collected for 11 normal children, 2 experienced BKA children, and a novice BKA...

    Little research describes which transfemoral socket design features are important for coronal plane stability, socket comfort, and gait. Our study objectives were to (1) relate socket comfort during gait to a rank order of changes in ischial containment (IC) and tissue loading and (2) compare...

    Abstract--Introduction: Overweight patients sometimes present a practical problem for provision of lower-limb prostheses. Most information about the effect of body weight on the endurance of prostheses is based on laboratory tests. This is a retrospective study based on an audit to study the...
