Prosthetics (Artificial Limbs)

Whether you choose to wear a prosthesis (artificial limb) or whether you are able to wear a prosthesis after amputation will depend on many things.

Some people may choose not to wear a prosthesis - they may find it easier to get around in a wheelchair or on crutches.

They may find that their health status may cause problems in getting and wearing a prosthetic limb every day.

In this section, we have put together some of our resources for patients who have or will be getting a prosthetic limb.
