Study on Gender Differences among People with Lower Limb Amputation in Indian Population on the Basis of Depression, Anxiety & Stress

The current study analyses the levels of depression, anxiety, and stress in patients with lower limb amputation in the Indian population based on gender differences. Because rehabilitation after amputation is a challenging road, it is vital to explore the influence of amputation on depression, anxiety, and stress levels in both genders.

Methodology: The rehabilitation unit of Indian Spinal Injuries Centre & Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, New Delhi, collected a sample of 100 Lower Limb Amputee patients who were non-prosthetic users (n=100, n=50 Males, n=50 Females). The data for this investigation was acquired using a straightforward sampling strategy. The Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale – 21 Items was used to assess depression, anxiety, and stress (DASS-21). The gender differences in depression, anxiety, and stress levels among participants with lower limb amputation were investigated.

SPSS data analysis software was used to evaluate the data collected. In terms of sadness, anxiety, and stress, an independent t-test was performed to compare the differences between the genders with lower limb amputation. Females with lower limb amputation had significantly higher levels of sadness, anxiety, and stress than males with lower limb amputation.

Conclusion: In patients with lower limb amputation in the Indian community, there was a gender difference in terms of depression, anxiety, and stress. Females with lower limb amputation have higher levels of sadness, anxiety, and stress than males with lower limb amputation, according to the study’s primary findings.
