FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME OF ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH CONGENITAL UPPER LIMB REDUCTION DEFICIENCY
Repository Usage Stats
In the Netherlands approximately seventy children with a congenital upper limb reduction deficiency will be born each year. One third of these children will be eligible for a prosthesis. Little is known about the functional outcome of adolescents and young adults with congenital upper limb deficiency. This study is the second part of a project to investigate the functional outcome of adolescents and young adults with an unilateral congenital upper limb deficiency in the south-west region of the Netherlands. The first part consisted of a description of functional status and level of participation of this group by using postal questionnaires. In this part the adolescents and young adults have undergone a functional assessment.
