Abstract: The most common causes of impairment and disability include chronic diseases such as newlinediabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer; injuries such as those due to road traffic crashes, conflicts, newlinefalls, birth defects, malnutrition and other communicable diseases (NHRC 2005). Among these, newlinediabetic foot ulcers cause elongated hospitalisations with high treatment costs and high rates of lower newlineextremity amputations resulting in increased morbidity and decreased quality of life (Akcay, 2012). newlineDiabetic neuropathy and its three subcategories can leave the lower extremity vulnerable to silent or newlinepainless trauma. That is the triggering event that can ultimately lead to lower extremity amputation, newlinereports, Hinkes (2009). A compromised circulatory system fails to bring enough fresh oxygenated newlineblood, nutrients, and antibiotics to a traumatic wound and the immune system cannot resolve an newlineinfection by fighting bacteria and cleansing the wound site on a cellular level, leading to amputation. newlineIn developed countries, vascular complications are the major contributors to lower limb amputations, newlinewhereas in developing countries, traumatic accidents are the major cause. Vascular complications and newlinediabetes are burgeoning health issues in developing countries, and diabetic ulcers are precursors of newlinelower limb amputation (Sage, 2006). Thus this group of people, who were amputated during the period newlineof study, formed an Amputated Cohort and the technical team of prosthesis fabricators, the prosthetist newlinecohort. Both contribute to and gain from the Science of Ergonomics. Being an ardent Research newlineScholar in Resource Management inspired a genuine interest to study the interplay of the two newlinedisciplines in rejuvenating the living standards of the concerned group, in the mean time analyse their newlineattitudinal change towards self care too. newlineIn any attempt made at rehabilitation, researchers stress the measurement of outcomes, geared newlineobviously by the need for evidence based practice, in place of giving services that have a traditional newline sake of service not
