Metabolic and body composition changes in first year following traumatic amputation

Carly S. Eckard, MS, RD, et al.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in energy needs, body fat, and lean mass following traumatic amputation. The findings in this study and future research in this area will assist Veterans with amputations in understanding physical changes for better prosthesis fit, rehabilitation, and prevention of chronic diseases related to increases in body fat. This research will also help healthcare providers tailor recommendations for diet and physical activity.
