Description: Because computerized 3-D gait analysis can be time-consuming, it may not be recommended for everyone with a lower-limb amputation. Instead, it may be reserved for the more difficult cases, such as people with two lower limb amputations, those with one limb amputated above the knee, or those who have persistent difficulty with the fit or alignment of their prosthesis. The information collected from the 3-D gait evaluation is compared with “normal” walking to identify deviations.
