Session: Prosthetics and Orthotics

Prosthetics and Orthotics


Prosthetics involves the use of artificial limbs called prostheses to enhance the function of persons with limb loss. The prosthesis are unique combination of suitable materials, alignments, design, and construction of material to meet the functional needs of an individual. Orthotics involves attention and creativity in the design and fabrication of external braces called orthoses as part of a patient’s treatment. The orthosis performs to control weakened parts or deformed regions of the body of a physically challenged person.
