OBJECTIVE To quantify the energy efficiency of locomotion and free-living physical activity energy expenditure of transfemoral amputees using a mechanical and microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee. DESIGN Repeated-measures design to evaluate comparative functional outcomes. SETTING Exercise physiology laboratory and community free-living environment. PARTICIPANTS Subjects (N=15; 12 men, 3 women; age, 42+/-9 y; range, 26-57 y) with transfemoral amputation. INTERVENTION Research… CONTINUE READING
