Neither hypothesis--(1) OC performance would be best with the C-Leg, or (2) movement efficiency would be highest (lowest THBI) with the C-Leg--was supported by the results of our study.
We observed a significant increase in THBI for the MLT condition compared with the no-MLT condition for persons using the C-Leg, suggesting that the C-Leg reduced movement efficiency when participants were subjected to an MLT.
It is unlikely that the faster walking speeds during the MLT trials (second round) of the OC were responsible for the increased THBI for the C-Leg.
The movement efficiency measured by the THBI may also have some limitations.
A roughly 10 percent increase in THBI (i.e., decreased movement efficiency) was observed in participants wearing a C-Leg when completing the OC with an MLT.
