Therefore, quality of life is an important outcome for lower limb amputees.Objective:To translate the Prosthesis Evaluation Questionnaire (PEQ) and evaluate psychometric properties.Study Design:Methodological research.Methods:Lower limb amputees responded to electronic versions of the PEQ and SF-36v2 at baseline (n=64), after two weeks (n=51), and after 12 weeks (n=50). Reliability was assessed using Cronbach’s alpha and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) analyses of the baseline and two weeks test-retest data.

Construct validity was evaluated by testing using hypotheses testing.Results:Reliability estimates (ICC/Cronbach’s alpha) for the nine subscales were: Social Burden (0.85/0.76), Appearance (0.85/0.72), Residual Limb Health (0.80/0.69), Well-Being (0.78/0.90), Utility (0.76/0.89), Frustration (0.74/0.90), Perceived Response (0.62/0.80), Ambulation (0.61/0.94), Sounds (0.51/0.65). Construct validity was supported in three out of four subscales evaluated.Conclusions:The subscales Social Burden, Appearance, Well-Being, Utility and Frustration had consistent high reliability, supporting their use in assessing the prosthesis related quality of life in lower limb amputees.
