- •Thin, flexible, lightweight distance sensors were placed inside transtibial sockets.
- •Sit, seated shift, stand, standing weight-shift, walk, partial doff, and non-use were detected.
- •Step count data did not well-reflect active use (stands + walks + standing weight-shifts).
- •Participants who had the highest active use temporarily doffed the most often.
