How does an above knee amputee stand after a fall?
A fall for a lower limb amputee can be a very scary experience. The reason is that it may be difficult for many people to get back up on their feet once they fall down. In addition, the fall may cause an injury that may even make it harder to get up when using prosthetic limbs. For this reason, one of the goals of therapy is to teach amputees techniques on how to get up after a fall. Various ways to do this exist.
