Background & Aims: Post-traumatic stress is a common psychiatric disorder among soldiers and veterans. Meanwhile, veterans who have lost one or two of their members in the war, due to post-traumatic stress, are also experiencing movement disorders. The purpose of this paper was to examine sensory disorders - anxiety disorders among warriors of Iran-Iraq war.         

Materials & Methods: This study was conducted on 150 male veterans of Iran-Iraq war which was composed of three groups. The first group included 50 patients with upper limb amputations, the second group of 50 patients with lower limb amputation, and a control group of 50 not-wounded subjects. For this purpose, questionnaires, interviews, and temping tests were used.

Results: The findings showed the possibility of p<0.001 that confirmed the accuracy of the statistical process. The growth of the movement in the first group and the second to the third group was associated with more errors. In addition, by increasing the drawing speed, the motion errors in the first and second groups showed an increase compared to the third group.

Conclusion: Temping test results showed that the control group decreased the number of their errors from 33 to 26. On the other hand, the number of mistakes of the first group of approximately was 24.2% instead of 17.5%. The second group of veterans was 13%; and the third group was 1% among (1.1±36 in the second stage and third stage 5.4±37). These findings indicate that damage to the sensory-motor and motor error rates increases.
