Post-prosthetic interventions:
Training to _____ the prosthesis

Don and doff


Post-prosthetic interventions:
For myoelectrically controlled prosthesis, training should be provided in:

Alignment of the electrode to obtain good electrode contact.


Post-prosthetic interventions:
Prosthesis wearing schedule: the intial wearing time should be ___ to ____

15 to 30 minutes


Post-prosthetic interventions:
After the initial wearing time of ___ to ___ minutes, the prosthesis should then be ____ and the ____

15 to 30 minutes
Removed and the stump examined for reddened areas


Post-prosthetic interventions:
If after 20 minutes of wearing there is no redness, the wearing time increased in increments of ___ to ___ increments until the client wears the prosthesis for ___

15 to 30 minutes
A full day


Any reddened areas that do not disappear after approximately 20 minutes should _______ so that

reported to the prosthetist
So that it can be adjusted.


Post-prosthetic interventions:
Limb hygiene, including

a. Daily cleansing
b. Inspection of stump for reddened areas, particularly insensate areas


Post-prosthetic intervention
Myoelectrically controlled prosthesis wearers must be taught to _____

replace batteries.


Post-prosthetic intervention
Prosthesis control training: is operation of

c. Prepositioning training:
d. Prehension training:

each component of the upper limb prosthesis


Post-prosthetic intervention:
Prosthetic use training is

integration of prosthesis components for efficient assist during functional use


Post-prosthetic intervention:
Prepositioning training is

identification of the optimal position of each positioning unit (e.g.,wrist, elbow) to perform an activity or grasp an object


Post-prosthetic intervention:
Prehension training is

TD control during grasp activities
e. Functional training: control and use of the prosthesis during functional activities


Post-prosthetic intervention
functional training examples

i. Incorporation of the TD as a functional assist
ii. Focus on a problem-solving approach
