Beinamputierte und die Kniemechanik bei Steigungen - Implikationen für die Prothesenkonstruktion


Observations of joint kinematics for level and inclined walking indicated that transtibial users were able to adapt swing phase knee flexion during slope ascent, while transfemoral users could not. Reducing prosthetic knee flexion damping on inclines helps to improve ground clearance.
