Abstract

To date, more than 150 patients worldwide, with partial hand amputations, have been fit with ProDigits technology. This study includes a comprehensive overview of 14 of those patients. A major emphasis will be placed upon individuals with partial hand loss due to congenital limb deficiency versus traumatic/disease partial hand loss, and individuals with unilateral and bilateral partial hand amputations. Four different domains are included in this study that represent how these 14 individuals perceive their "Improved Self Image," "Increased Independence," "Positive Change in Lifestyle" and "Increased Activity and Participation in Daily Life." In order to adequately measure these parameters, an overview of a Client Centered Care System (3CS) assessment will be demonstrated, as it presents a new evidence-based tool for upper limb amputee outcomes measurement.
