Objective: To determine the association of ambulatory and social performance status of trans-femoral prosthetic users with age, gender and marital status.
Methods: A cross sectional study with 400 trans-femoral prosthesis users were conducted. Sample of both genders aged 10-60 years using appliance for at least one year was recruited using non-probability convenience sampling from Pakistan Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Sciences from July 2019 to December 2019. Lower Extremity Functional Scale and Short Form 36 Health Survey Questionnaire were used for data collection followed by statistical analysis.  
Results: Ambulatory status as measured by total Lower Extremity Functional Scale revealed significant association (p<0.001) with age groups with highest score for age group 10-30 years' age group; and significant association (p=0.003) with marital status with highest scores for unmarried was noted. However, no significant (p=0.705) gender association was noted though scores were higher for male gender. As regards Social Performance as measured by Short Form 36 Health Survey Questionnaire, revealed significant association (p<0.05)  of most domains of SF-36 with age groups with highest scores for age group of 10-30 years. Also significant association with gender with higher scores in females was noted in most domains. While no significant association with marital status was noted in most domains.
Discussion: Ambulatory status has significant association with age and marital status with no significant gender association. While social performance has significant association with gender, while most domains reveal significant association with age groups. However, no association with marital status is present.
