Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to: 1) measure pistoning and horizontal motion (transverse plane) of the limb inside the socket using an inductive proximity sensor; 2) measure changes in the movement due to socket fit; 3) determine relationship to elevated vacuum pressure fluctuation during gait.
