Hi,

Bench alignment
Taking the time to properly bench align a prosthesis contributes to a smooth, energy efficient gait pattern. This includes controlled knee flexion after heel strike, smooth rollover with limited recurvatum (hyperextension), and heel off prior to initial contact on the normal (other) foot.
In your opinion, what is meant by "Bench" in the expression "Bench alignment"?
From the article "Trans-tibial alignment- Normal bench alignment," by Noelle Lannon - Canada
Thanks,

    Here are some images of "bench alignment" in this context, rositakay: bench alignment. I assume that the term refers to aligning a prosthesis while the foot of that prosthesis rests on a flat bench.
