dc.description.abstract The human upper limb, especially hand, is a very complex part of the body with many different functions including motor, sensory and expression. After amputation, all functions of the human hand are lost. The amputation dramatically changes a person’s sense of body image, it has severe psychological consequences and it influences a person’s satisfaction with life. Due to lost functions, a person has problems at many activities, leisure pursuits, social contacts as well as at work. The main aim of rehabilitation is to enable persons of any age, gender or culture to become independent in performing individual meaningful activities of daily living and to reintegrate them into society (to be able to participate in all social roles). en_US
