Research on Early Ambulation:
Miller, T.A., Paul, R., Forthofer, M. and Wurdeman, S.R., 2020. Impact of time to receipt of prosthesis on total healthcare costs 12 Months Postamputation. American journal of physical medicine & rehabilitation, 99(11), p.1026.
- Earlier receipt of a prosthesis is associated with reduced spending in the 12 mos postamputation of approximately $25,000 compared with not receiving a prosthesis.
- The results of this study suggest that not providing or delaying the provision of a prosthesis increases costs by about 25%
Miller, T.A., Paul, R., Forthofer, M. and Wurdeman, S.R., 2020. The Role of Earlier Receipt of a Lower Limb Prosthesis on Emergency Department Utilization. PM&R. Oct 3.
- Individuals who receive a prosthesis early, within 0 to 3 months, post‐LLA were 48% less likely to use the emergency department compared to those who did not receive a prosthesis.
- Individuals that fell were 2.8 times more likely to use emergency department.
