Title card for PMF 5336, a 33 minute film entitled Rehabilitation of Bilateral Amputee, Exercises: Fitting of and Training with Prostheses (1960).

The Professional Medical Film (PMF) series was a series of technical motion pictures produced by the U.S. Army from the mid-1940s through the late 1960s. The series covered psychiatric, surgical, and tropical medicine, radiation health effects, and other health topics in an American military medicine context.
