Abstract
The present paper aims to study the impact of pandemic COVID-19 on specific population of lower limb amputees and whether this has any significant difference between the prosthetic and non- prosthetic user in context of depression, anxiety and stress.A sample of 50 Lower Limb Amputee patients was collected from rehabilitation unit of Indian Spinal Injuries Centre & Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, New Delhi. The sample included 25 Prosthetic users and 25 Non-Prosthetic users. In this study data was collected by convenient sampling technique during the COVID-19 pandemic. Depression, anxiety and stress were evaluated by Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale - 21 Items (DASS-21). The scores of depression, anxiety and stress were evaluated to find out the differences among Prosthetic & Non- Prosthetic Users. Data recorded was analyzed using SPSS data analysis software. An Independent t-test was used to compare the difference among both the prosthetic & non-prosthetic users with lower limb amputation in terms of depression, anxiety and stress. There was significant difference seen among the non-prosthetic users with higher level of depression, anxiety and stress as compared to prosthetic users with lower limb amputation. The key findings of the study suggest that the non-prosthetic users with lower limb amputation tend to have higher level of depression, anxiety and stress in comparison of prosthetic users with lower limb amputation.
