VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guidelines
The Management of Upper Limb Amputation Rehabilitation (ULA) (2022)
The ULA CPG is designed to address the key principles of rehabilitation and clinical care for patients with upper limb amputation. The overall goal of amputation rehabilitation is to optimize the patient’s health status, function, independence, and quality of life. Ongoing medical assessments and therapy interventions to address psychosocial, physical and functional limitations are necessary to achieve these desired end states.
