From: Uneven terrain exacerbates the deficits of a passive prosthesis in the regulation of whole body angular momentum in individuals with a unilateral transtibial amputation

Fig. 4

Average (mean) sagittal plane angular momentum. Values (a) at foot contact, (LC) and (b) during ipsilateral stance phase (LR), normalized to mass, height and speed (unitless). Individuals with (n = 10) and without (n = 10) amputation walking on flat (FT; blue bars) and uneven (UT; gray bars) terrain. Solid and dashed bars represent prosthetic and sound (or matched prosthetic and sound) limbs respectively. Pairwise comparisons: ‘*’ significant difference between limbs (prosthesis vs sound); ‘¥’ significant difference between groups (amputation vs no impairment); all at p = 0.05
