Elizabeth Klodd, MS, et al.

Lower-limb prosthesis users are common among the U.S. veteran population. This study investigates a design factor that may help researchers understand prosthetic foot function. A greater understanding of how prosthetic foot forefoot flexibility affects walking may improve prosthetic foot design and prescription in the future.
