Abstract: The amputation of a lower limb is a drastic event and it completely changes the life of the person. Current development of prosthesis is already advanced, but most of the affected persons suffer from changes in the gait which are visible to the general public. The gait of transfemoral amputees was investigated in the laboratory environment and is called asymmetric due to different facts: shorter step length, smaller velocity and smaller cadence. The use of mobile inertial sensors can be supportive in the rehabilitation process of these patients. That is why a pilot study is conducted to evaluate the gait of transfemoral amputees and compare their gait parameters with those of the healthy subjects. The purpose of the investigation is to identify gait parameters showing the asymmetric properties of the amputees gait. Eight parameters seem to be distinctive and descriptive.
