Abstract:

Maximum isometric moments of transtibial (TT) and transfemoral (TF) amputees were tested at the residual limb hip and knee. Compared to controls, TF showed hip strength deficits in all motion directions while TT had knee and hip strength deficits in all directions but in hip adduction and extension.
