Course Description

CEU Course Description

This CEU course describes the trunk, lumbopelvic, and hip joint movement asymmetries of the amputated limb of people with transfemoral amputation (TFA) and transtibial amputation (TTA) during functional tasks as compared with the intact leg and/or referent leg of nondisabled controls.


CEU Course Objectives

1.  Explain how participants with TFA compensate for limited hip motion.

2.  Investigate the results of improper prosthetic alignment.

3.  Examine the loss of lower-limb musculature and the segments of the body that must compensate during walking.

4.  Identify the phase that lumbopelvic and trunk asymmetries are more pronounced.
