“…2 In contrast to impairment involving many other body regions, visual impairment is associated with high levels of disability, making the prevention of eye injuries especially important. 3 Although people of all ages experience eye injury, children <18 years of age sustain nearly 35% of all eye injuries in the United States. 1 A small number of studies have used data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to evaluate eye injuries to adults and children for shorter time periods, but these studies did not perform extensive analyses of the majority of NEISS variables, determine injury trends over time, calculate the magnitude of associations between independent and dependent variables, or evaluate mechanisms of injury as was done in our study.…”

“…For example, loss of both the index and middle fingers results in 40%, 36%, and 22% impairments of the hand, upper extremity, and whole body, respectively. 4 Partial hand deficiencies also account for approximately 46.4% of total congenital upper limb deficiencies. 5 Amputation can cause physical, psychosocial, and economic damage to an individual and can lead to depression, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, and social isolation.…”

“…9 While the number of individuals with partial hand amputation is 10 times greater than that of all other categories of upper limb amputation combined, the prosthetic options for this patient population are relatively poor. 4,5 Prosthetic solutions for partial hand amputations are generally considered only after reconstructive surgical procedures have failed. 10 Individuals with partial hand loss can be fit with either passive silicone cosmeses, passive mechanical devices, body-powered devices, or externally powered devices.…”
