A standard prosthesis can be used for playing golf. However, due the rotation of the lower limbs during a golf swing a torque adapter or shock absorber is ideal for dispersing the forces on the residual limb. These can either be built into the prosthetic foot or they may be added as a component. The length of residual limb and the build height of the prosthetic foot would need to be taken in to account as to whether these components or foot choice would fit. By adding these components, you can reduce the strain on your residual limb, hip and/or knee joints and lower back.
