Physical Activity and Sport Prostheses Matrices for Lower Limb Amputees

LimbPower have spent the last year working with healthcare professionals to look at which physical activities and sports require which type of prosthesis at which level of activity. We have produced the attached document through consultation. We are conscious that many amputees think that they need a bespoke prosthesis to take part in physical activity and sport which is simply not the case. We hope that this document along with an infographic for amputees, which we plan to lunch in June will go someway to dispelling this myth and will help us collectively to get more amputees physically active. Some barrier are a lack of information and education and this is just one step in getting more amputees active.
