The report will be available to download following completion of the FREE purchase.
LIMBLESS STATISTICS is a repository for demographic and clinical quantitative information on ONLY new UK referrals for prosthetics treatment, NOT on the whole UK limbless population. Using Data Tables, this information – on all UK prosthetics service centres – is summarised in Annual Reports covering the period from 1st April to 31st March of the following year.
Purchasing an Annual Report needs to be completed online to make it available for downloading.
Prosthetics Service Centres, a number of Prosthetics Companies, and Information Services Division (ISD) Scotland, who supplied the raw data for LIMBLESS STATISTICS, receive Annual Reports free of charge (new Annual Reports will be emailed to the specific people who the University of Salford works with).
Annual Reports come as a PDF file and contain data that consist of 10 Classifications: 3 Primary Classifications that describe some of a limbless person's fundamental physical characteristics, and 7 Secondary Classifications that describe further physical characteristics and clinical information. Primary Classifications are combined in various configurations as are Secondary Classifications, and all Primary Classification configurations are combined with each Secondary Classification configuration. An example of a full Annual Report – but without any data in its tables – can be purchased free of charge. PURCHASED ANNUAL REPORTS ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.
You may purchase only one Annual Report at a time, so please ensure you leave the quantity selection at ‘1’.
The purchasing procedure will ask you ‘Please select from your saved delivery addresses’, which is a standard request by the Online Shop Software and does not mean that purchased Annual Reports will actually be delivered to you. Instead, the only way to obtain a purchased Annual Report is by downloading it from your Online Shop Account.
Once the purchase is complete, you will automatically be logged out, so please log back in again to your Online Shop Account to download the Annual Report file.
Only one download is permitted per purchase, and clicking on the ‘Download’ button is classed as using your download. Therefore, if you see the option to ‘Save’, ‘Open’ or ‘Cancel’, please choose ‘Save’ (or otherwise ‘Open’ and then save the document once it is open). If you choose ‘Cancel’ at this stage you will have made use of your one download and hence it WON'T BE DOWNLOADABLE AGAIN WITHOUT ANOTHER PURCHASE.
The data are provided on an ‘as is’ or on a ‘take them as you find them’ basis, and therefore Limbless Statistics makes no representations, warranties or guarantee of any kind (without limitation) express or implied about the accuracy, suitability, reliability or any express or implied fitness for any particular purpose. In no event shall Limbless Statistics be held liable to any person(s), entity or other third party for any direct or indirect claim, loss, damage and/or incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages or loss of profit resulting from any use or misuse of the said data. Any reliance placed on such data is therefore entirely at the user’s or users’ own risk.
