TRUNK BIOMECHANICS OF TRANSTIBIAL AMPUTEES IN LEVEL AND SLOPED GAIT USING RIGID, HYDRAULIC AND MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLED ANKLES

Short description

Study with the aim to investigate how different prosthetic feet influence trunk angles during gait in transtibial amputees (TTA). Six TTA, six controls, three feet analysed during -5°, 0° and +5° gait. Feet show small differences for trunk angles, but with probably no influence on lower back pain.
