The Biomechanics of Cycling with a Transtibial Prosthesis: A Case Study of a Professional Cyclist

Abstract

The article deals with biomechanics of cyclist with unilateral transtibial amputation. Transtibial amputation completely removes ankle and part of muscles of a lower leg which are responsible for production of force during pedaling and causes significant geometric and power asymmetry between the limbs during cycling movement. The primary goal of this work… (More)
