Physical performance and self-report outcomes associated with use of passive, adaptive, and active prosthetic knees in persons with unilateral, transfemoral amputation: Randomized crossover trial

Brian J. Hafner, PhD; Robert L. Askew, PhD, MPH

Modern prosthetic knees have the potential to greatly improve function, health, and quality of life for people with above-knee amputation. Evidence from studies that compare different knees is needed to inform clinical selection and justification of available knee technologies. This study compared outcomes from people with above-knee amputation using prostheses with three different types of prosthetic knees. Results of this study can be used to guide selection and set realistic expectations for those who prescribe, fit, and use these prosthetic knee technologies.
