The biomechanical interaction between the leg stump and the prosthetic socket is critical in achieving close-to-normal ambulation. Although many investigations have been performed to understand the biomechanics of trans-tibial sockets, few studies have measured the socket interface pressure for transfemoral amputees. Furthermore, no report has examined how the residual muscle activities in the transfemoral stump affect the socket interface pressure characteristics during gait. In this study, an… CONTINUE READING
