Spatio-temporal characteristics of locomotion of transfemoral amputees fitted with bone-anchored prosthesis
Pinard, Veronique & Frossard, Laurent (2013) Spatio-temporal characteristics of locomotion of transfemoral amputees fitted with bone-anchored prosthesis. In XIV World Congress of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO), 4-7 February 2013, Hyderabad, India.
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 specific objective of this study was to present the key temporal and spatial gait characteristics for unilateral amputation. The ultimate aim of this study was to characterise the functional outcome of the individual with transfemoral lower limb amputation fitted with osseointegrated fixation, which can be assess through temporal and spatial gait characteristics.
