This study scientifically measures the dynamic gait characteristics and energy cost of six male below-knee amputees, three vascular and three traumatic, while wearing SACH, single axis and multiple axis prosthetic feet via six-camera motion analysis, metabolic measurement cart and heavy-duty treadmill. Subjective results are additionally determined via questionnaire after testing. Motion analysis showed statistically significant differences at p<0.05 between the solid ankle cushion heel (SACH), single axis and multiple axis foot in the velocity, cadence, stride length and gait cycle. Significant differences were found in energy cost among the prosthetic feet tested, and significant changes in walking under different speeds and different inclines. Results provide quantitative and qualitative information about the dynamic performance of the various feet which can be helpful in prescribing the optimal prosthetic foot for individual amputees.
