Vanicek, N., Strike, S.C. and Polman, R. C.J., 2014. Kinematic differences exist between transtibial amputee fallers and non-fallers during downwards step transitioning. Prosthetics and Orthotics International, 39 (4), 322 - 332 .

Stair negotiation is biomechanically more challenging than level gait. There are few biomechanical assessments of transtibial amputees descending stairs and none specifically related to falls. Stair descent may elicit more differences than level gait in amputees with and without a previous falls history.
