The RE marker model has been shown to avoid exaggerated measures of dorsiflexion associated with deformation of the prosthetic forefoot or motion at the pseudojoint between the prosthesis and residuum as well as heel slippage within the shoe [23].
Errors associated with applying the HH marker set to study ankle kinematics in PFA can be attributed to either deformation of the forefoot (or in other words, buckling of the shoe at the pseudojoint between the toe filler and residuum) or movement between the shoe and device or shoe and heel of the residuum (Figure 9).
