Temporal and spatial gait characteristics of transfemoral amputees fitted with osseointegrated fixation: preliminary data
Pinard, Veronique, Tranberg, Roy, Haggstrom, Eva, & Frossard, Laurent (2011) Temporal and spatial gait characteristics of transfemoral amputees fitted with osseointegrated fixation: preliminary data. In I Scientific Day of the Group of Research on Adapted Physical Activity, 2011, Montreal, Canada.
The conventional method of attachment of prosthesis involves on a socket. A new method relying on osseointegrated fixation is emerging. It has significant prosthetic benefits. Only a few studies demonstrated the biomechanical benefits. The ultimate aim of this study was to characterise the functional outcome of transfemoral amputees fitted with osseointegrated fixation, which can be assess through temporal and spatial gait characteristics. The specific objective of this preliminary study was to present the key temporal and spatial gait characteristics.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
