Abstract

Consensus clinical standards of care were recently developed through three rounds of Delphi consensus surveys. The 40 statements that reached consensus standards for inclusion encompassed indications for general prosthetic consideration, as well as indications and considerations for body powered, externally powered and oppositional silicone restoration prostheses, terminal device selection, the selection of body powered control strategies, considerations for moisture, debris or heavy duty use, activity specific prostheses and indications for multiple terminal devices. These standards may serve to guide clinical decision making and inform medical policy.
