OBJECTIVES To determine the effect of 3 prosthetic mass conditions on selected physiologic responses during multiple speed treadmill walking in persons with transtibial amputation. DESIGN A repeated-measures design for 3 prosthetic mass conditions and 5 walking speeds. SETTING University research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Eight ambulatory men with unilateral traumatic transtibial amputation. INTERVENTIONS The 3 prosthetic mass conditions were 60%, 80%, and 100% of the estimated intact… CONTINUE READING
