Abstract:

The effects of a new adaptive prosthetic ankle were investigated in transtibial amputees (TTA) during ambulation on stairs and ramps using instrumented 3D-gait analysis. Significant improvements in kinematics and kinetics were found when walking with the adapted compared to the non-adapted ankle.
