The main objectives of rehabilitative treatment in the amputee patient are the psychophysical recovery of the patient through protetization and, finally, their socio-labor reintegration. To be able to measure the achievements obtained with the rehabilitative treatment we need to have objective assessment measures (functional assessment scales) that will allow the use of standard terminology. The objective of this study is to review various scales of assessment of the amputee. The scales have been classified as universal (Barthel Index, Pulses Profile, Functional Independence Measure, and Edinburg scale) and specific: for members (Enneking scale and Locomotion Score in Rheumatoid Arthritis) and for amputees (Day scale and the questionnaire Prosthetic Profile of the Amputee). This study seeks to discover the design parameters and the acceptance of the population that uses prosthetic devices and their environment (family, work and health personnel) towards new technologies in terms of prostheses to discover and understand the functioning of the Uncanny Valley in the Ecuadorian environment, to avoid falling into it. The results will be adequately delimited and tabulated by intelligent computer systems.
