Abstract

ABSTRACT

The Orthotics and Prosthetics National Office Outcomes Tool (OPOT) was developed to assess health status, client satisfaction, and prosthetist's perception of function for clients with lower extremity prosthetic needs. The data set comprised 840 adults requiring lower extremity prostheses, as seen in 56 practices by 278 prosthetists from 25 states. Clients completed standardized health status and satisfaction questions and prosthetists completed questions pertaining to client demographics and functional abilities at the initial fitting and at the eight-week follow-up. Data support the reliability and construct validity of the OPOT for clients with lower extremity prosthetic needs.
