John Cumbo

I have been asked by Chris McCann of Whyalla Hospital South Australia

to post this question on the OAND-l listserver.

Please forward any email responses to me, otherwise you can

correspond directly with Chris at this address:

“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.
