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.
