Evaluation of Physical Functions in Lower Limb Burn Injury

2019-11-14 17:39:52 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates scar tissue, normal range of motion of lowr extremity joints, lower extremity functions, functional capacity, functional mobility, kinesiophobia and quality of life in lower limb burn injury.


Patients with lower extremity burns experience problems with range of motion, muscle strength, balance and gait. These problems contribute to prolonged physical disability, return to work or deterioration of work capacity and thus lead to a negative impact on quality of life.

In addition to studies showing that quality of life and functions may be affected adversely after burn, there are studies showing that burn percentage, health-related quality of life and functional outcomes are affected. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of burn area (with or without joint), percentage of burns and hypertrophic scar on the patient's function in patients with lower extremity burns.
