The purpose of this study is to address footwear challenges unique to women prosthesis users. Comparing the effectiveness of different footwear and prosthesis combinations will help guide clinical decision making regarding the prescription of prosthetic devices, while keeping what the patient wants in mind.
It is expected that these results will be used to generate new knowledge for the development of versatile prosthetic devices that accommodate a user's unique lifestyle while helping the patient to make good progress in rehabilitation.
Investigators will characterize perceived limitations in footwear among women prosthesis users. Investigators think that women prosthesis users will be restricted in footwear choices and clothing choices due to the use of a prosthetic device.
Specifically, investigators expect perceived limitations in footwear will be greater for shoes with higher heels than shoes without heels.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Lower Limb Amputation Below Knee (Injury) Lower Limb Amputation Above Knee (Injury)||Other: Questionnaire|
The project involves development, distribution, and analysis of a questionnaire designed to address footwear use among women lower limb prosthesis users. Responses from sixty women with a lower extremity amputation will be targeted. VA participants will be identified by the MVAHCS. These potential participants will receive the IRB-approved survey via mail. Eligible participants include women with unilateral or bilateral lower extremity amputations.
The questionnaire will target the types of footwear worn by prosthesis users and the types of footwear desired to be worn. It will also capture the various types of prosthetic feet worn in each footwear category, amputation type, time spent walking in a prosthetic device, and general satisfaction with the prosthesis function during daily living when worn with shoes.
