Reliability and Validity of the Finnish Version of the Prothesis Evaluation Questionnaire

2015-06-09 01:38:22 | BioPortfolio


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.

Walking and balance in children and adolescents with lower-limb amputation: A review of literature.

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 ...

Transfemoral amputee intact limb loading and compensatory gait mechanics during down slope ambulation and the effect of prosthetic knee mechanisms.

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...

Population-based study of mortality and major amputation following lower limb revascularization.

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.

Incidence and associations of painful neuroma in a contemporary cohort of lower-limb amputees.

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 ...

Development and preliminary evaluation of a new anatomically based prosthetic alignment method for below-knee prosthesis.

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.
