Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to assess the performance of ten highly mobile transtibial amputees on an obstacle course and laboratory setting utilizing three different multi-function prosthetic feet vertical shock, torsion control, multiaxial and energy storing. At this time, the study is still underway therefore we do not have significant findings to report. The equipment to be used for metabolic and timing has been evaluated and tested, and performed satisfactorily.
