EN The development of modern technologies has made it much easier to regain the ability to walk after losing a lower limb. The variety of prosthetic feet available on the market allows for optimal choice and appropriate adjustment of the foot prosthesis to the trans-tibial amputee patient’s needs. Unfortunately, the best solutions are often not available to everyone due to their high prices. This study compares the gait patterns of patients using the new concept of an affordable dynamic foot with those of other commonly available but much more expensive foot prostheses. The kinematic and spatio-temporal parameters of gait obtained using the motion capture system were analyzed. For a clear picture of changes in bilateral deficits during gait for the pelvis, hip, knee, and ankle joints, the symmetry function was used. The results indicate that the new and cheaper concept of foot prostheses offers a very similar level of gait quality to that provided by more expensive and popular solutions. The authors suggest that the use of symmetry function thresholds of 10% does not work for amputees.
