The full decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) can be
found here:

It is interesting to read, and I found it encouraging that the
scientific experts of both parties were largely in agreement. The
conclusion was that no evidence exists for an overall advantage due to
the prosthesis. Key words are "no evidence" and "overall". There may
be some advantages but also some disadvantages which cancel out in the
overall performance. There may be even an overall advantage (or
disadvantage) but so far the data are not conclusive.
