Written by physiatrists, prosthetics, and therapists at the University of Michigan, this clinically oriented text is designed for busy practitioners managing patients with limb loss who are candidates for, or are undergoing, prosthetic restoration. The goal is to provide an illustrated, state-of-the-art overview of the science and practice of post-amputation care, prosthetic restoration, and functional rehabilitation that maximizes patient independence and quality of life. The text addresses practical questions and problems, such as how to design a care plan or select the best prosthesis for a patient to align with expected activity level or demographic, and is intended as a ready reference to support clinical decision making. The book covers both lower and upper extremity restoration and rehabilitation. Beginning with basic anatomy and kinesiology and a brief recap of surgical principles and post-operative care for amputees, chapters in each section discuss biomechanics, clinical assessment, prosthetic options, writing a complete and detailed prescription for the prosthesis, restoration and management of specific problems by region, and rehabilitation programs and strategies. Common medical issues such as phantom limb sensation and pain, skin problems, and psychological considerations are discussed as well. Prosthetic restoration for special populations and prostheses for sports and recreation are treated in a dedicated section at the end of the book. Chapters will be written in outline format and feature lots of diagrams, photos, and other illustrations for ease of use. Each chapter will conclude with 1-2 case scenarios and 5-8 multiple choice questions with answers and explanations for self-study purposes.
