Abstract

Following discharge amputees do not always receive regular reviews by physiotherapists, and may adopt a variety of habitual gait patterns that can lead to back pain. The increase in transverse rotation of the pelvis in trans-femoral amputees, as produced by circumduction, is a contributing factor to lower back pain (Morgenroth et al., 2010). Real-time biofeedback of kinematic data to amputees may help address inappropriate habitual gait patterns. Recently there has been renewed interest in the application of biofeedback for gait re-education (Lunenburger et al. 2007). Such feedback could also help therapists convey information to patients regarding kinematic alterations during hands-on physiotherapy in a rehabilitation gym.
