Normative PEQ-MS and ABC Scores Among Persons with Lower Limb Loss

Prosthetists are increasingly encouraged to measure and document outcomes such as mobility and balance in routine practice. The Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire (PEQ) and Activities-specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) are self-report measures available for measuring such outcomes. Show Full Description.

Prosthetists are increasingly encouraged to measure and document outcomes such as mobility and balance in routine practice. The Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire (PEQ) and Activities-specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) are self-report measures available for measuring such outcomes. However, normative data for these measures is not available. These instruments were administered to 942 persons with lower limb loss in a national cross-sectional study. ABC and PEQ-MS scores significantly differed among those with different levels (e.g., transfemoral and transtibial) and etiologies (e.g., trauma and dysvascular causes) of amputation.

The Academy Paul E. Leimkuehler Online Learning Center is a forum for the presentation and discussion of orthotic and prosthetic concepts. The opinions and ideas expressed by speakers are not necessarily those of the Academy or its membership.
