Rehabilitation in patients with bilateral upper extremity amputation presents a considerable problem for prosthetic training. This is a report of a bilateral transhumeral amputee and a bilateral transradial amputee admitted for intensive prosthetic rehabilitation. They underwent bilateral upper extremity amputation due to electric burn. They were successfully fitted with conventional body-powered prostheses. The problems in rehabilitation of adult bilateral upper extremity amputees were discussed and the patients' compliance was assessed. In our two cases, good acceptance and functional benefit were noted. Thus, we suggest that multidisciplinary approach including prosthetists with full discussion should be a very important factor for specialized comprehensive prosthetic training of multiple complexed amputee.

Key Words: Bilateral upper extremity amputation, Prostheses, Rehabilitation
