Etymology: L, stare, to stand; Gk, phainein, to show; ME, gate, a way
the phase of the normal gait cycle that begins with the strike of the heel on the ground and ends with the lift of the toe at the beginning of the swing phase of gait.

The first system to be introduced clinically for gait compensation was a mechanical structure that locked or limited joint movement during the stance phase of gait, such as the ankle-foot orthosis (AFO), the knee-AFO (KAFO), or the hip-KAFO (HKAFO), depending on the specific joint weakness.

The required functionality of a transtibial prosthesis during the stance phase of gait can be summarized as (1) providing early stance shock absorption during load acceptance, (2) adapting to the ground surface by plantar-flexing to a stable foot flat position, (3) providing close to normal shank kinematics during stance by replicating the loaded roll-over shape of the normal foot, and (4) contributing to push-off and a close to normal transition into swing phase.
