Document Type


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the gait of unilateral transtibial amputees (TTA)
during stair ascent by performing asymmetrical analysis through the using of muscular-skeletal
(MSK) modelling. This was used to determine compensatory strategies employed by TTA and
provide suggestions for future prosthetic design to minimise these.
