Biomechanical characteristics of the lower extremities of amputee versus normal subjects

Hrysomallis, Con (1991) Biomechanical characteristics of the lower extremities of amputee versus normal subjects. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether biomechanical characteristics of the non-amputated leg of unilateral lower extremity amputees significantly differed from the dominant leg of normal subjects. A comparison was made of the mean peak isokinetic knee extensor and ankle plantar flexor torques and mean performance in one-legged static and counter movement vertical jumps.
