Biomechanics of transfemoral amputees fitted with osseointegrated fixation: Loading data for evidence-based practice

Frossard, Laurent & Branemark, Rickard (2010) Biomechanics of transfemoral amputees fitted with osseointegrated fixation: Loading data for evidence-based practice. In III International Conference on Advances in Orthopaedic Osseointegration, 2010, Gothenburg, Sweden.


This presentation will provide an overview of the load applied on the residuum of transfemoral amputees fitted with an osseointegrated fixation during (A) rehabilitation, including static and dynamic load bearing exercises (e.g., rowing, adduction, abduction, squat, cycling, walking with aids), and (B) activities of daily living including standardized activities (e.g., level walking in straight line and around a circle, ascending and descending slopes and stairs) and activities in real world environments.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
