Abstract   (163 Views)
This study aimed to determine amputation-related factors that affected the activities of daily living in persons with amputations. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in Babylon Rehabilitation Centre from August 1st and November 20th, 2023. The study sample consists of 250 amputees using a standardized questionnaire. Data were collected through the interviews and analyzed by applying descriptive and inferential statistical approaches. Findings indicate significant portion of amputees (63.6%) exhibited poor activities of daily living, with factors such as age (p=0.000), gender (p= 0.008), amputation reasons (p= 0.000), site (p= 0.005), and duration (p=0.000) being predictive variables according to simple linear regression analysis. The study highlights a worrying prevalence of poor activities of daily living among amputees, with amputation-related factors serving as important predictors. Interventions aimed at enhancing ADL function among amputees must adopt a comprehensive approach that addresses the variety of factors that influence daily functioning.
