Rehabilitation of Persons with Transtibial Amputation
This chapter focuses primarily on strategies for initial and intermediate-level rehabilitation, with a short discussion on more advanced prosthetic training. Anticipated functional outcomes for the transtibial prosthetic user are also addressed. Evidence-based practice requires the integration of best research evidence, clinical expertise, and patient values. The goal of this chapter is to provide a foundation for using evidence-based practice in the managment of the individual with transtibial amputation.
