The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of fitting the VASS (TEC Harmony) in trans-tibial amputees (TT) with open stump wounds in terms of:

  • Achieving the same mobility as amputees without wound healing problems fitted with patellar-tendon bearing prosthesis (PTB)
  • Pain control during walking with prosthesis (compared to amputees fitted with PTB)
  • Effect on wound healing
