Golf Prosthesis

Golfing with Prosthetics

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.

Above Knee (TF) amputees as well as Through Knee (KD) amputees would require a prosthetic knee joint that is stable, especially on slopes and uneven terrain. If you are not already on a knee joint that offer these features, your knee joint would have to be upgraded to improve your stability. A knee joint without these features would feel like it wants to unlock when on a slope or uneven terrain.

There are numerous knee joints on the market that offer this essential stability on undulating terrain. Please consult your prosthetist about the options available if you are having problems with your current knee joint.
