Reduction of residual limb volume in people with transtibial amputation

Audrey T. Tantua, MD, et al.

An adequate prosthesis fit is important for rehabilitation of people with transtibial amputation. They function better in all aspects of daily life than those who have fitting problems with their prosthesis socket. Residual limb volume changes a lot in the postoperative phase. Therefore, it is important to measure residual limb volume in order to time a definitive prosthesis accurately. The aim of this study was to analyze the reduction of residual limb volume in the postoperative phase in order to facilitate prosthesis prescription.
