2. Common Gait Deviations
It can be difficult to discern when a deviation in gait has a root cause in the prosthesis, the method of donning, or patient education and training. While many deviations can be corrected by adjusting the prosthesis, often this is neither correct nor necessary. This section will help you recognize and problem solve several of the more common deviations seen early in physical therapy training with the transfemoral prosthesis.
