First, maintain a good position.

Prevent joint contracture and deformity of residual limbs.

As part of the muscle is cut off after amputation, it will cause muscle imbalance and joint contracture. Such as: hip flexion, hip abduction, knee flexion, ankle joint plantar flexion, the results will affect the alignment of the prosthesis. Therefore, postoperative should be contraindicated: raise the affected area when lying on the back, pad the pillow in the perineum and make the thigh abduction, long-term wheelchair ride, lift the limb with a wooden turn and other bad posture. Postoperative joints should be placed in the functional position, and early functional exercise to make the joints flexible and deformed.
