Limb loss greatly affects the lives of those that
experience it. The majority of previous limb-loss
research has been conducted in laboratory settings.
Little is known about how limb loss affects persons
with amputation in their homes and communities.
Here, step counts of persons with above-knee limb
loss were studied to describe monthly, seasonal, and
yearly patterns. This study showed that persons with
limb loss are greatly restricted in their regular activity.
Daily activity was highly variable and changed
by month and season.
