Guest Jim S.
Is complete functional loss equal to loss of use?

I would suspect it is, as long as the functional loss could be better served with a prosthetic device. Of course their are different types of functional loss, such as loss of use for a creative organ, funtional loss of eye site.

Also the loss of function means they have lost the use of that part of the persons anatomy, foot, leg, hand, arm, etc.

Also if it applies to a VA Claim, that the loss of function and/or loss of use is as a result of his time in service and or developed within one year of discharge.

Thanks Jim. I have one medical opinion that states "complete functional loss of hand and foot" and another that says "loss of use of hand and foot. Both are in reference to my service connected stroke that is secondary to my service connected HBP and DMII.
