Abstract:

Kinematic and kinetic data were collected on patients using an eight-camera 3D motion analysis system and an instrumented treadmill. Patients wearing the carbon prosthesis showed an increased walking speed, a reduced step length difference, a lowered CoP-shift and a restored forefoot lever.
