Rebuilding wounded veterans: Annual review of limb loss & prosthetics research

The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD) has compiled a compendium of articles describing advances in limb loss and prosthetics research published in 2004. This research provides state-of-the-science knowledge, evidence-based rehabilitation practices, techniques, and devices that enable veterans and others with limb loss to improve their health outcomes, to participate in sports and leisure activities, and to perform the mundane activities of daily-living able-bodied people take for granted.

March/April 2004 (Volume 41, Number 2) Pg. 175 "Liner" classification system may revolutionize prosthetic limb fitting
Investigators developed a classifica-tion system to better match elastomeric liners (stretchy socks worn between residual limbs and prosthetic sockets) with the needs of patients with amputations. The newly-developed classification system will guide elastomeric liner prescription and fitting by providing information comparing the mechanical performance of different liner products.

May/June 2004 (Volume 41, Number 3B) Pg. 453 Smoking, foot care linked to self-efficacy in people with amputations
Investigators describe the extent to which veterans with a nontraumatic, unilateral lower-limb amputation engage in foot care and smoking, and if health beliefs and psychological well-being are related to those health behaviors. A belief in one's ability to engage in good foot care and that good foot care reduces the risk of future foot problems were significantly correlated with daily foot care practices. In addition, psychological well-being was significantly related to foot care and smoking status.

Pg. 481 Telerehabilitation for veterans with a lower-limb amputation or ulcer
Investigators analyze the acceptability of information available via a customized telerehabilitation system regarding patients with lower-limb ulcers or recent lower-limb amputa-tions. This study prov
