While there are proponents of both bone-bridging and non-bone bridging transtibial amputation techniques, there is a lack of evidence describing functional differences between these two techniques. The goal of the present investigation was to objectively compare the techniques of bone-bridging and non-bone-bridging with respect to limb socket displacement during physiologic loading.
