This study presented the characteristics of the loading impact on the residuum of a transfemoral amputee fitted with an osseointegrated fixation during a fall for the first time. The maximum force (1,145 N = 132 % of the body weight and moments (153 N.m) were applied on the long and medio-lateral axes, respectively, approximately 0.85 s after heel contact of the prosthesis.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
