How do walking, standing, and resting influence transtibial amputee residual limb fluid volume?

Joan E. Sanders, PhD, et al.

In this study, the effects of resting, standing, and walking on residual limb fluid volume were measured. Results from 24 participants with transtibial amputation showed that standing caused fluid volume losses, while walking and resting caused fluid volume gains in some subjects and fluid volume losses in other subjects. The nature of activity is important when considering carrying out volume accommodation strategies.
