Effects of alignment variables on thigh axial torque during swing phase in AK amputee gait.

Abstract

It is suggested that a major source of discomfort for above-knee amputees during the swing phase of walking, is the thigh axial torque (TAT) transferred at the stump--socket interface. The relation between TAT and variations in its six relevant alignment adjustments, has been investigated. A computerized routine has been established which indicates optimum… (More)
