Application of self-report and performance-based outcome measures to determine functional differences between four categories of prosthetic feet
Robert S. Gailey, PhD, PT, et al.
We examined the application of clinically friendly outcome measures to determine the effects of gait training and prosthetic feet on the function and mobility of people with a transtibial amputation. Of the five outcome measures used, the Amputee Mobility Predictor was able to detect functional differences between prosthetic feet. Gait training can improve function in those with transtibial amputation and enable them to take advantage of various prosthetic foot designs.
