1

What are some fit problems seen during walking?

pistoning
noises

2

what are some tests for prosthetic gait examination

10 meter walk test
6MWT
2 min walk test
L test (tug)

3

common prosthetic gait deviations

adducted gait
decreased pelvic or trunk rotation

4

If there is lateral trunk bending what is impaired with prosthetic

outset foot
short prosthesis
abducted socket

5

If there is lateral trunk bending what is impaired with amputee

distal lateral pain
weak abd
short residual limb

6

If there is abd gait what is wrong with prosthetic? how about amputee?

high medial/lateral wall

distal lateral pain

7

for circumduction gait, what is impaired with prosthetic?

prosthesis is too long
excessive knee friction
excessive extension

8

unequal stride/hypertlordosis causes?

insufficient socket flexion or amputee reluctant to shift weight.

9

cause of terminal impact?

insufficient knee friction

or amputee lacks confidence

10

if there is a whip that means the prosthetic is

set in too much rotation
