Purpose:

The purpose of this descriptive and exploratory pilot study is to investigate: (1) sagittal plane hip kinematics and kinetics and (2) metabolic consumption/cost, for bilateral transfemoral walking with passive prostheses versus powered prostheses. The pilot study will collect data from three subjects with bilateral transfemoral amputations. Differences in kinetics, kinematics, and oxygen consumption/cost when comparing passive and powered components may indicate benefits for clinical application of powered devices for persons with lower limb amputation.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Male or female - All causes of limb amputation: congenital, trauma, vascular, limb salvage, infection. - All transfemoral residual limb lengths: joint disarticulation, long, medium, short, very short. - Subjects currently walk with entirely passive type prostheses daily. - Subjects walk without assistive devices OR with single point cane. - High-activity level walkers Exclusion Criteria: - Ages < 18 or > 45 years - Medical comorbidities or existing conditions that may impede the subjects ability to complete the protocol excluding the amputations. - Current medications or pharmaceutical interventions that may impede the subjects ability to complete the protocol. - Any powered prosthetic component or prosthesis, including but not exclusive to: Ossur Proprio Foot, BiOM or BiOM T2 System Foot, Ossur Power Knee, Ossur Symbionic Leg. - Subjects requiring a walker, crutches, quad cane, or other assistive devices excluding a single point cane. - Low-activity level walkers
