Amputee Mobility Predictor Prosthesis (AMPPro)
What it measures:
21-item performance-based functional test designed specifically for people with lower limb loss. The score can be used to differentiate between the DMERC Medicare Functional Categories Levels (MFCL). The AMP can assist with determining sitting and standing ability, standing balance, dynamic balance, and gait attributes. The AMP can be a measure of change in function especially during early rehabilitation.
