Amputation is known as the surgical removal of the body part. Amputation occurs as a result of many conditions. The most common reason is poor blood circulation which results in a result of narrowing or damage of arteries. Objective: To determine the correlation between mobility restriction, body image perception and prosthesis satisfaction among lower-limb amputee prosthesis users. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 63 participants after taking consent from IRB from University of Lahore. The data was collected from PSRD, Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital of Lahore. Both males and female amputees were included with 18 to 60 years. Data was collected by using TAPES, Amputee body image scale and amputee mobility predictor assessment scale. Results: The results showed that the average age out of 63 amputees were 39.37. Female were 21 (33.3%) and male were 42 (66.7%). According to result people with below the knee amputation had more mobility (20.00), more satisfaction level (62.04) and less disruption of body image (18.15) in comparison with people who had above the knee level amputation (15.50, 68.50 and 16.50). The result showed that satisfaction level and mobility were directly correlated with one another but on the other hand inverse correlated relationship was seen of body image disruption with mobility and satisfaction level (P<0.05). Conclusions: Based on these results, it was concluded that body image perception, mobility and prosthesis satisfaction are correlated to one another in people with lower limb amputation who uses a prosthesis.
