Table 2 Number of subjects that used each recovery strategy

From: Transfemoral amputee recovery strategies following trips to their sound and prosthesis sides throughout swing phase

Tripped limb Elevating Delayed-lowering Lowering Incomplete arrest Skipping Hopping Average number of strategies per subject
Able-bodied 6 8 8 8 0 0 3.8
Sound side 3 1 8 6 3 2 2.9
Prosthesis side 5 6 8 6 0 2 3.4
  1. Typical able-bodied strategies are elevating, delayed-lowering and lowering strategies, and incomplete arrests
  2. Amputee-specific strategies are skipping and hopping
