Lower limb prosthetics system overview | Ottobock AU
Controlled and before-and-after studies that compared the use of a lower limb prosthesis versus a different prosthesis or no prosthesis in adults (older than 18 years) were eligible for inclusion. Review primary outcomes were activity, participation and/or quality of life; secondary outcomes were user satisfaction, use/non-use and cost-related outcomes. Studies were required to be conducted in a real-life context and to report at least one of the primary outcomes. Eligible types of prosthesis were listed in the review. Studies that were conducted in a laboratory setting or that included a control population who had not undergone amputation were excluded.
