Calling all lower limb amputees - this quick survey could help improve rehabilitation services

Brunel University is inviting individuals with lower-limb amputation to participate in a short survey, in order to improve service provision before prosthesis fitting.

Some survivors of meningitis and septicaemia can be left with amputations. In adjusting to life as an amputee, individuals are asked to attend rehabilitation classes during the period between lower limb amputation and prosthesis fitting. A new study from Brunel University aims to identify factors affecting attendance of the rehabilitation classes.

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the reasons why people either attend or do not attend classes during this rehabilitation stage, so that the quality of service provision can be improved.

MRF would like to join Brunel University in inviting individuals with lower-limb amputation to participate.

Please read the participant information sheet before taking part.
