The Healthcare Professional’s Guide to Transtibial Prosthetics

Synopsis

Lower limb amputations as a result of vascular complications are the leading cause of amputation in the developed world. With increasing rates of chronic diseases that may result in amputation, such as diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, most healthcare professionals are likely to encounter at least one lower limb prosthesis user during the course of their careers.

Below knee amputations (transtibial amputations) are the most common level of lower limb amputation and are likely to be encountered by different groups of healthcare professionals in a variety of settings.
