Abstract

It is well known within the P&O community that provision for persons with limb loss in LMICs is lacking, with only 5-15% receiving the prosthetic devices they require. What is not clear are the specific challenges children face from point of amputation through prosthetic provision onto continued rehab in adulthood.
