Vanicek, N., Strike, S., McNaughton, L., & Polman, R. (2009). Gait patterns in transtibial amputee fallers vs. non-fallers: biomechanical differences during level walking. Gait and Posture, 29(3), (415-420). doi:10.1016/j.gaitpost.2008.10.062. ISSN 0966-6362

Transtibial amputees are at an increased risk of falling compared to age-matched, able-bodied individuals. The aim of this study was to compare the gait patterns of recent amputee fallers vs. non-fallers during level walking by investigating joint ki...
