An Analysis of the Mobility Analysis of AmpuTees (MAAT) Studies for Therapists and O&P Providers

The prevalence of lower limb amputations in the United States continues to rise with a projected population of 3.6 million amputees by 2050, up from 1.6 million in 2005.  Accompanying the rise in patients is a shift in healthcare policies that place increased emphasis on patient-centered outcomes as they relate to prosthetic mobility. While prosthetic rehabilitation has traditionally focused on restoring functional mobility, there is now a need to go beyond that and better understand the impact of improved mobility holistically. 

The MAAT studies seek to delve into that impact and clarify the concept of prosthetic mobility as it relates to such considerations as satisfaction, quality of life, comorbid health conditions, and prosthetic component choices.  Join us as Clinical Education Specialist, Erin O’Brien, CPO, FAAOP, discusses how these studies can provide insight to those who care for limb loss patients around the country.

Objectives

Upon completion of this program, participant will be able to:

  • Review relevant and current prosthetic rehabilitation concepts as they relate to each study
  • Leverage measured outcomes and studies to benefit and better understand patient communities
  • Identify the impacts of satisfaction, quality of life and prosthetic componentry
