OBJECTIVE To determine the balance performance of active lower-limb amputees during quiet standing and under dynamic conditions. DESIGN Center-of-pressure excursions during quiet standing and the standing balance performance on a single axis stabilimeter was assessed in six unilateral lower-limb amputees and six able-bodied controls. Stabilimeter trials were repeated with subjects standing so that pivoting occurred either in the anteroposterior or mediolateral direction or in the mediolateral… CONTINUE READING
