Coronal plane socket stability during gait in persons with transfemoral amputation: Pilot study

Stefania Fatone, PhD, BPO(Hons), et al.

Little research describes which design features of a transfemoral socket (e.g. ischial containment [IC] and medial tissue loading) are important for coronal plane stability, socket comfort, and gait. The results of our pilot randomized crossover study suggest that medial tissue loading contributes little to coronal plane stability and comfort in a well-fitted IC socket and are consistent with classic theory describing the importance of soft tissue loading along the proximal-medial aspect of the residual limb in sockets without IC.
