  • prosthetic mass summary

    Hi subscribers,
    Thanks to all those who replied to my request for information
    regarding the effect that changing the mass of a prosthesis has on
    the biomechanics of the amputee's gait. it seems that there is not
    a great deal of information specifically on this topic. Certain
    authors were advised as being relevant, though titled references
    were not always given:
    Tsai and Mansour; Susan Menkveld; Tashman; Van dr Veen; Hale (1990)
    Tim Bach and Lanshammer(P&O International, 6, pp97-102; 1982)
    Most of the work is in the Journal of Biomechanics; P&O International;
    J Prosthetics and Orthotics and the J of Biomedical Engineering.
    As yet, this is a little vague, but if I get more information I'll
    post responses again.

    Again, thanks to everyone for their help,

    Siobhan Hillery.
