Asymmetrical loading demands associated with vertical jump landings in people with unilateral transtibial amputation.

Abstract

Loading symmetry during vertical jump landings between a person with amputation's intact and prosthetic limbs was assessed to determine the role of each limb in controlling the downward momentum of the center of mass during landing. Six participants with unilateral transtibial amputation (TTA) and ten nondisabled participants completed 10 maximal vertical… (More)
