  1. 1. Motion Analysis and Postural Stability of Transtibial Prosthesis Users

    Author : David Rusaw; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Artificial limb; balance; electromyography EMG ; motion analysis; postural stability;

    Abstract : The AIMS of the thesis were to critically evaluate motion analysis methods used during investigations of transtibial prosthesis users, and to propose improvements to these methods. Additionally, the aim was to evaluate if vibratory feedback could be used to improve postural stability in transtibial prosthesis users and how being a prosthesis user influenced muscular response to postural perturbations.
