Residual-limb quality and functional mobility 1 year after transtibial amputation caused by vascular insufficiency.

Abstract

This study identified which residual-limb quality factors are related to functional mobility 1 year after transtibial (TT) amputation. A group of 28 TT amputees were evaluated with respect to their functional mobility (Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire [PEQ], Locomotor Index, Timed Up and Go test). The general (Chakrabarty score) and bony (tibial length… (More)
