The Atlas of Limb Prosthetics: Surgical, Prosthetic, and Rehabilitation Principles conducted a study to compare the energy expended when walking with a single prosthetic leg and walking with crutches. The use of crutches with double amputees was not studied. When the prosthetic legs are well fitted and the patients have satisfactory gaits, patients expend less energy walking with prosthetic legs than when walking without prosthetic legs and using crutches.

A limb bank is the key to this system. Limb banks involve the collection over a period of time of a variety of electronic components which can be loaned to the patient on a trial basis for a modest leasing charge, Brenner explains in the Atlas of Limb Prosthetics. For a fraction of the cost of new hardware, necessary componentry for a preparatory/training prosthesis can be provided.

A mechanical prosthesis can operate easily in most physical environments and can achieve a high level of accuracy and speed during functional performance, says Carl D. Brenner, C.P.O., Michigan Institute for Electronic Limb Development, Livonia, Michigan, in the Atlas of Limb Prosthetics: Surgical, Prosthetic, and Rehabilitation Principles (Second Edition, Mosby-Year Book, 1992.)
