The evidence about the clinical efficacy of lower limb prostheses, especially regarding fall risk, is scant. Here we present some findings from a retrospective study conducted on the archive of a large centre for prosthesis fitting and rehabilitation. Fall risk is analysed on transfemoral amputees in relation to their clinical profile and their prosthetic knees.

Abstract

The evidence about the clinical efficacy of lower limb prostheses, especially regarding fall risk, is scant. Here we present some findings from a retrospective study conducted on the archive of a large centre for prosthesis fitting and rehabilitation. Fall risk is analysed on transfemoral amputees in relation to their clinical profile and their prosthetic knees.
