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.
