Foot loading in amputee stance

A survey has been carried out to establish information on foot loading in amputee stance. The parameters measured are percentage body weight and the positions of the centres of pressure under each foot. The data was collected in a clinical environment by the use of a Double Video Forceplate (DVF), a tool developed at the Bioengineering Centre. The objective of the survey is to provide background information for the use of the DVF in static alignment of lower-limb prostheses. Results are presented from a number of patients attending the Roehampton Walking Training School, and for a small group of patients attending the Bioengineering Centre for delivery of an experimental below-knee prosthesis. Scattergrams and averaged results provide normative data which can assist in interpretation of DVF displays during individual alignment.
