The low success rate for prosthetic walking among older hip disarticulation (HD) amputees is usually considered to be a result of the weight of the prosthesis itself and the increased energy consumption required for walking [1-3]/ However, the advent in recent years of modular endoskeletal types of lower-limb prostheses has reduced prosthesis weight, thereby reducing the physical burden of prosthetic walking to some extent.

He regularly used a PTB endoskeletal prosthesis, a flexible socket liner with a gel liner, a lock-and-pin suspension, and a Freedom Innovations dynamic response prosthetic foot.
He used a PTB endoskeletal prosthesis, a polypropylene socket, a 6 mm Alpha liner, lock and pin suspension, and a Luxon Max dynamic response prosthetic foot.
The socket was attached to an endoskeletal pylon and single axis foot.
