This paper describes two techniques for management of below-knee amputees: The Removable Rigid Dressing for post-operative stump care, and The Scotchcast preparatory prosthesis for early gait training. Our 7 years experience with the Removable Rigid Dressing as a routine procedure and 5 years experience with the Scotchcast prosthesis for nearly 200 patients have shown significant improvement of the total care of below knee amputees.
