Transducer-based comparisons of the prosthetic feet used by transtibial amputees for different walking activities: a pilot study.


BACKGROUND Knowledge of transtibial residual limb force and moment loading during gait can be clinically useful. The research question was whether a transducer attached between the socket and pylon can be used to detect differences in loading patterns created by prosthetic feet of different design and different walking activities in real-world environments… (More)
