The horizontal GRF patterns observed on the affected limb(s) during loading response were quite variable, with timing of the first peak delayed and the magnitude of the peak reduced more commonly, but not exclusively, in those with bilateral Chopart amputation (Figure 1(b)-(c)).
By contrast, the subjects with Chopart amputation exhibited a more normal CoP excursion pattern despite the more proximal amputation (Figure 3(b)-(c)).
