1

What 3 gait deviations occurs in a transfemoral with not enough knee friction?

1. Terminal swing impact
2. Uneven step length
3. Uneven heel rise

2

What gait deviation in a transfemoral occurs with too hard of a heel

Foot rotation at heel strike

3

What gait deviation in a transtibial does quad weakness cause?

Excessive knee extension

4

In a transtibial, Which way would foot be displaced to cause excessive knee flexion or extension?

Anterior foot displacement = excessive knee extension
Posterior foot displacement = excessive knee flexion

5

What 2 things in a transtibial can cause excessive valgus deformity

1. Foot placed too laterally
2. Adducted socket

6

In a transfemoral, what kind of knee rotation causes medial vs lateral whip?

External knee rotation = medial whip
Internal knee rotation = lateral whip

7

What 3 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs with a prosthesis too long

1. Abducted gait
2. Circumducted gait
3. Vaulting

8

What 2 things in a transtibial can cause excessive varus deformity at stance phase?

1. The foot placed too medially.
2. Abducted socket

9

What gait deviation in a transfemoral occurs if prosthetic is too short

Lateral bending

10

What 3 gait deviations occur in a transfemoral with hip abduction contracture?

1. Lateral bending
2. Abducted gait
3. Circumducted gait

11

What 2 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs with too soft of a heel

1. Foot slap
2. Drop off at end stance phase

12

In a transtibial, Which way would socket be displaced to cause excessive knee flexion or extension?

Socket anteriorly displaced = excessive knee flexion
Socket posteriorly displaced = excessive knee extension

13

What 3 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs with hip flexion contracture

1. Uneven step length
2. Exaggerated lordosis
3. Instability of prosthetic knee

14

What kind of gait deviation does a hard vs soft heel cushion in a transtibial amputee cause?

Hard heel cushion = excessive knee flexion
Soft heel cushion = excessive knee extension

15

In a transtibial, Does increased ankle dorsiflexion/plantarflexion cause excessive knee flexion or extension?

Ankle DF = knee flexion
Ankle PF = knee extension

16

What 2 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs with too much knee friction?

1. Circumducted gait
2. Vaulting

17

What 4 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs due to hip weakness

1. Circumducted gait
2. Foot rotation at heel strike
3. Instability of prosthetic knee
4. Exaggerated lordosis

18

What 2 gait deviations in a transfemoral occurs with a high medial wall

Lateral bending and abducted gait
