In a nutshell: This study looked at the strategies such amputees use to cope with gait stability and adaptability, and how these differ from those adopted by able-bodied controls. It found that amputees can use the same strategies to deal with these challenges and to prevent falls, though they tended to walk more slowly than those in the control group.
