Caring for a person with a lower limb amputation requires the full continuum of care-from amputation to the fitting of a permanent prosthesis to achieving maximum functional capability. With recent prosthetic technology advancements, persons with lower limb amputations are reaching higher levels of functional capabilities. At each step of the rehabilitation process, distinct intervention strategies are implemented to ensure the patient progresses along the full continuum that leads to the optimal outcome of achieving functional independence. As healthcare providers, it is imperative to maintain current knowledge of prosthetic componentry. The purpose of this presentation is to educate case managers, nurses and other healthcare providers about the goals and components of an interdisciplinary amputee program as well as to review current prosthetic technology.
