Lower limb amputation and activity levels?

Does having a lower limb amputation affect your activity levels? If you fit the eligibility criteria, please take a few minutes to help Lydia with her research which could be of ultimate benefit to lower limb amputees.

My name is Lydia and I am a 4th year Prosthetic and Orthotic student at the University of Strathclyde, for my final year project I have created a survey with the aim of identifying  whether activity levels generally increase or decrease following lower limb amputation surgery and to identify the key factors that lead to the change. This study will hopefully help raise awareness to health care professionals of the key factors post amputation which prevent or encourage lower limb amputees’ involvement in sport and physical exercise.

The anonymous survey takes roughly 5-10mins. If you would like to participate, please click the link below or use the QR code in the advertisement. There is further information on the study at the beginning of the survey which I recommend you read before starting.
