Literature review of the evidence on hydraulic ankles, passive and powered microprocessor-controlled feet


Non-MP or passive MP-controlled hydraulic ankles may be considered for transtibial amputees with compromised toe clearance and/or residual limb stress. Powered prosthetic feet may be considered for high-functioning transtibial amputees to further shorten the functional gap to able-bodied subjects.
