I asked this quetion to punkncat on another thread but thought I woud make it its own thread and may be seen by more eyes so here is my question. Does anyone ride with a shortened crank on the prosthetic side? I know a shorter crank will relieve pressure caused by socket pinch if thats a problem but any other advantages that you've found.
I am an AKA with no quads on right leg and limited hams. I am able to apply pedal pressure although limited on the down stroke but no lift on up stroke. Left leg does most the work. A crank shortener can be purchased for about 100bucks and I plan on trying one but just wondering if anyone has actual experience or comments. Thanks
