The present study assesses the reliability and validity of the Finnish version of Prothesis Evaluation Questionnaire. Major lower extremity amputees who use prosthesis are requited for the present study from the Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District and the Central Finland Health Care District.
> 100 lower extremity prosthetic users with major lower extremity amputation are recruited for the present study. The aim is to assess the reliability and validity of the Finnish version of the Prothesis Evaluation Questionnaire (PEQ). The participants fill in a pre information form, the PEQ, the 15D health-related quality of life questionnaire, Houghton prothesis questionnaire, Locomotor Capabilities Index - 5, Prothesis Evaluation Questionnaire Mobility Section - 5. The psychometric abilities of the PEQ instrument are analyzed.

During any period of rehabilitation it is important to select meaningful tests that; measure what you want, are responsive to changes in the patient's condition and, easy to use in the cli...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new prosthetic socket construction technique in order to improve the quality of care to lower extremity amputees.
Vascular lower limb amputees have an increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of the study is to evaluate the hemodynamic changes after amputation and its relation to outcome.
Children with lower limb loss face gait and balance limitations. Prosthetic rehabilitation is thus aimed at improving functional capacity and mobility throughout the developmental phases of the child ...
Intact limb knee osteoarthritis is a prevalent secondary disability in transfemoral amputees. Walking down a ramp may increase this risk due to excessive limb loading. We sought to determine whether i...
The aim of this study was to estimate separate risks of major lower limb amputation and death following revascularization for peripheral artery disease (PAD) using competing risks analysis.
The painful post amputation neuroma significantly impairs the prosthesis-wearing lower-limb amputee. It remains poorly understood, with literature limited to cohorts of traumatic amputees. This paper ...
The objectives of current study were to a) assess similarities and relationships between anatomical landmark-based angles and distances of lower limbs in unilateral transtibial amputees and b) develop...
Amputation of a lower limb through the sacroiliac joint.
The part of a limb or tail following amputation that is proximal to the amputated section.
An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
