Assymetry of foot pressure for transfemoral amputees during gait in real world


Abstract The prosthetic socket is the most important compartment of the prostheses for transfemoral amputees. Nowadays, the ischial containment socket (ICS) and anatomical socket (ANA) have been widely used as prosthetic socket for transfemoral amputee. Some studies have showed differences of biomechanical features between the sockets, such as range of motion of lower limb. Although transfemoral amputees are characterized by gait asymmetry, there have been few studies that investigated gait asymmetry during a gait in real-world environments. The aim of this study was to assess asymmetry of foot plantar pressure in transfemoral amputees during a gait in real-world environment considering prosthetic sockets (ICS)
