Prosthetic interventions for people with
transtibial amputation: Systematic review and
meta-analysis of high-quality prospective
literature and systematic reviews
M. Jason Highsmith, PhD, DPT, CP, FAAOP, et al.
This literature review is important to Veterans
because war injuries, military training, and service
sometimes result in leg amputation. The review reports
that many common prosthetic interventions have
some scientific evidence to support their use. These
include prosthetic alignment interventions, prosthetic
feet, certain types of sockets, pylons, and certain postamputation
strategies. However, even the best prosthetic
research in these areas need improvement.
