Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

A major concern for upper-limb prosthesis users noted by prosthetists and OTs is rate of prosthesis rejection. The creation of the video program is one strategy to counteract this concern. The purpose of the program is to provide clients with an additional resource to learn and relearn how to complete daily tasks with their prosthesis. The program in place was designed to determine how effective and helpful the videos are for prosthesis users visiting Össur Touch Solutions.
