Amputee rehabilitation involves the multidisciplinary assessment of all amputees and the resultant advice and therapy delivered. It is essential that treatment is delivered in a patient-centred manner and timely fashion. Amputee rehabilitation includes patients over a wide spectrum of ages—from a baby born with an upper or lower limb deformity or deficiency to an elderly patient with vascular disease and multiple medical comorbidities. Amputee rehabilitation is no longer concerned with only patients who are suitable for limb fitting. It is inclusive of all amputees and the specialist amputee multidisciplinary team should be able to provide valuable advice and therapy to all amputees
