prosthetic traning

considerations for prosthetic training

all fx of the hip,knee,& foot are absent; most common cause is malignancy;does not allow for acitvation of the prosthesis thru a residual limb; prosthetic motion must be initiated thru weight bearing Hemipelvectomy and Hip Diarticulation
length of the residual limb with regard to leverage and energy expenditure; no ability to wt bear thru the end of the residual limb; susceptible to hip flexion contracture; adaptation required for balance, wt of prosthesis, and energy expenditure Transfemoral Amputation
loss of all knee, ankle,&foot fx; the residual limb can wt bear thru its end; susceptible to hip flexion contracture; knee axis of the prosthesis is below the natural axis of the knee; gait deviations can occur secondary 2the malalignment of the knee axis Knee Disarticulation
loss of ankle &foot fx; residual limb does not allow 4 wt bearing @ its end; wt bearing N the prosthesis should B distributed over the total residual limb; patella tendon should Bthe area of primary wt bearing; adaptations required for balance;knee contra Transtibial Amputation
loss of all foot fx; residual limb can wt bear its end; residual limb bulbous with a non-cosmetic apperance; dog ears must B reduced 4 proper prosthetic fit; adapation required 4the increased wt of the prosthesis;adapation required due2.toeoff during gait Syme's Amputation
loss of forefoot leverage; loss of balance;loss of wt bearing surface; loss of proprioception; tendency to develop equinus deformity Transmetatarsal and Chopart's Amputation
