Abstract

Disability refers to the complex, and multi-dimensional health condition where one or
multiple functions are impaired or limited due to different causes such as trauma,
diseases, old-age, and genetic and inborn factors (WHO, 2011). Statistically people
with disability consists of 15% of the global population of which its 80% live in low- and
middle-income countries (LMICs). However, rehabilitation experts and services are
inadequate in LMICs and other low resource settings, especially for people that require
prosthetic devices. One of the possible solutions is to develop affordable computerized
systems to facilitating rehabilitation for people with lower limb amputation. In this study
we developed a computerized rehabilitation system consisting of actuated adaptor and
its data streaming, and visualization software.
