Abstract

Activities of daily living were evaluated on 30 unilateral upper limb amputees. Although independence was more obvious in the amputees who have had distal amputations, all the amputees reached an adequate functional level in the activities of daily living. The treatment period for upper extremity amputees was shorter for distal than for more proximal amputations. © 1989, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
