Preparatory Exercise

 

1. Balancing Exercise: Amputees should start the exercise after they are able to sit up. The exercise includes sitting up on a bed       and standing up using chairs to balance the bodies.

2. Crutch Walking: This exercise should be carried out as soon as possible after the amputation so that amputees do not spend         too much time on wheelchairs. Supervised by medical practitioners, this exercise should begin by strengthening arm muscles,         enabling amputees to lift up themselves with their own arms.

3. Stand hopping: Amputees should take the hopping exercise when they are able to stand and walk in short distance without a         crutch. This will enhance the balance of the body and reduce the fear of falling down.

4. Stump Exercise

5. Walking Exercise: Practicing walking with or without forearm clutches or a walker.
