PMID:  1163618     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Completely independent application of lower extremity prostheses and clothing is essential but often difficult to accomplish in optimal rehabilitation of the bilateral above-knee amputee. This paper suggests an occupational therapy treatment plan for above-knee amputations, discusses reasons for dependency and decreased use of lower extremity prostheses and clothing, and describes a bilateral lower extremity dressing frame designed for independent application of prostheses and lower extremity clothing. The cost of rehabilitation can be justified once independence in application of prostheses and clothing is accomplished and functional ambulation is achieved.
