A prosthetic is an artificial device used in place of a missing body part. Technology has allowed medical experts to make great advances in this field. Prosthetics can be specially customized to fit the amputee’s needs and lifestyle. While some prosthetics are created for esthetics and are nearly an identical match to the features of the missing limb, others are created for functionality and allow individuals to participate in sports and recreational activities.
Having an understanding of common prosthetic terminology and available resources will not only provide guidance through the initial stages of recovery, but it will also help to make daily activities more enjoyable.
