An innovative foot module with easily accessible frontal plane adaptation enhances the locomotion on uneven ground

Abstract: This biomechanical study investigated 12 unilateral TT amputees walking on uneven terrain with different prosthetic foot concepts. The novel foot module with a dedicated joint for frontal plane adaptations showed advantages over conventional ESR feet when walking on uneven ground.

Clinical study comparing C-shape and low profile prosthetic feet for low active amputees

Abstract: This abstract presents results of user testing. Seventeen low active (K2) amputees tested two types of low active feet. Results indicate subjects perceiving ankle motion, the transition from sitting to standing, stability, and overall performance better on a c-shaped foot compared to a low profile.

How important is heel adjustment with prosthetic feet to people with a leg amputation? Initial results of an online survey

Abstract: Mittels eines Delphi-Prozesses wurde ein Fragebogen mit klinisch relevanten Protheseneigenschaften inkl. der Absatzverstellung bei Prothesenfüßen erstellt. Es soll abgeschätzt werden wie wichtig Personen mit einer Beinamputation die Absatzverstellung in Relation zu anderen Charakteristika ist.

Improvements in health-related user outcomes with microprocessor feet

Abstract: Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) were compared between microprocessor foot (MPF) users and non-microprocessor prosthetic feet (NMPF) users. The findings indicated improvements in ambulation and transferring, reductions in pain and a trend towards reducing stumble and fall frequency.

Effects on ankle power during level ground walking with three fundamentally different prosthetic feet

Abstract: We analysed the ankle power and load parameters on the sound side of transfemoral amputees with the 1D10 (modified SACH), an Energy Storing and Returning (ESR) and an active foot (AF). The maximum load parameters on the sound side were reduced with increased ankle power.
