Abstract

This case study introduces a distinctive strategy for rehabilitation of an amputee with a very rare kind of transtibial amputation, leading an extremely short stump in addition to knee joint arthrodesis leading the stump in a fixed extension position, in a very cost-effective way by utilizing the Jaipur prosthesis fabrication technology and material.
