Résumé

This presentation will provide an overview of the load applied on the residuum of transfemoral amputees fitted with an osseointegrated fixation during (A) rehabilitation, including static and dynamic load bearing exercises (e.g., rowing, adduction, abduction, squat, cycling, walking with aids), and (B) activities of daily living including standardized activities (e.g., level walking in straight line and around a circle, ascending and descending slopes and stairs) and activities in real world environments. A particular emphasis will be placed on the outcomes of several studies for an evidence-based design of the rehabilitation program and components of the fixation (e.g., implant, abutment). It is anticipated that this work might contribute to the current effort aiming at shortening the rehabilitation program and reducing the incidence of replacement of abutments.
