This is part one of a series illustrating the prosthetic services, rehabilitation and research currently underway at BAMC. Case presentations will be utilized to illustrate the team approach to provide clinically appropriate amputee rehabilitation.

Protocols for advanced prosthetic training will be presented with emphasis on various prosthetic componentry. Advancements in the rehabilitation of the military amputee at the Center For the Intrepid will be discussed in detail to include functional capacity evaluations, drivers training, and firearms training simulator. A case study that involves an individual who sustained a dominant upper extremity transhumeral amputation with total loss of vision will also be discussed.
