The TFP, a 9-item instrument describing graded tasks, aims to assess the prosthetic potential of transfemoral amputees. The instrument was used in its paper form (N=93) and for a video assessment of a subset of these amputees (n=75). The TFP is a simple, valid, and reliable measure of prosthetic potential for transfemoral amputees. Video assessment with the TFP was very successful and in the future could be used for both training purposes and to provide expert assessment through telehealth.
- reliability and validity
- transfemoral fitting
- lower limb amputees
