Nivel de Amputacion para Protesis

Today I created my 2nd tri-fold for the O&P Lab at Fundacion CAMO. This pamphlet contains information for surgeons regarding the ideal level of amputation. The basic lesson is that one must take into account the lifestyle of the patient when choosing the amputation level, and that at times it is better to remove more of the limb to allow more space for the prosthetic components designed for an active lifestyle. You can download the .jpg files to print by clicking on the pictures.

NOTE: Neither of these pamphlets have been reviewed by Fundacion CAMO. If you intend to use the information in these pamphlets or would like a document for editting for your personal use, please contact me.
