Kinematic gait adaptations in unilateral transtibial amputees during rehabilitation (2009)
Journal Article
Barnett, C., Vanicek, N., Polman, R., Hancock, A., Brown, B., Smith, L., & Chetter, I. (2009). Kinematic gait adaptations in unilateral transtibial amputees during rehabilitation. Prosthetics and orthotics international, 33(2), 135-147. https://doi.org/10.1080/03093640902751762

Introduction: Physiotherapists routinely prescribe the use of two different early walking aids (EWAs) to individuals who have recently undergone unilateral transtibial amputation. No research to date has investigated the kinematic gait patterns of tr... Read More about Kinematic gait adaptations in unilateral transtibial amputees during rehabilitation.
