What is Prosthetic leg?

Category: Equipment


Prostheses are artificial devices that replace a missing body part. The choice of prosthetic will vary for each patient and it may depend on the location of the leg amputation, the overall health of the patient, and the types and level of activity that the prosthetic will be used for.
