Amputee complexity score?

Ted Trower

I’m looking at some management processes and it strike me that it might be
reasonable to attempt to score the complexity of any particular amputee
fitting, prior to beginning the fitting process.

I cannot say I’ve ever seen this done or referred to, but for assessing
outcomes in a reasonable manner it seems it would be necessary.

My first impulse is to simply add up the number of medical / surgical
complications present in the individual. There has to be a better way but
it would certainly be simple.
