Abstract:

In order to assess the walking mechanics and effects on hip function that accommodate lower limb osseointegrated prosthetics, we propose a study comparing walking mechanics from motion analysis and hip muscle health from MRI between osseointegrated and socket transfemoral amputees who are at least two years following final surgery with no outstanding complications. Results from this work stand to 1 report the biomechanical outcomes of lower limb osseointegrated prosthetics in comparison to conventional socket prosthetics, 2 clarify the role of muscle function on biomechanical outcomes in lower limb amputees and explore the related risk for hip replacement on the affected side for transfemoral osseointegration, 3 inform targeted rehabilitation approaches for improving walking mechanics, and 4 motivate the development of regenerative therapeutics for muscle recovery
