“Is their available a series of Simple Physical Test to establish if
amputees are suitable for Prosthetic Rehabilitation. While I realize
these tests would not be definitive, it may go some way to making a
more informed decision by the Rehabilitation Team. It may also help
the new amputee realize how physically fit they have to be to achieve
a certain level of rehabilitation.”
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
