Prosthetics and Orthotics is a profession that
deals with fabrication and fitment of rehabilitation
aids and appliances for the disabled persons.
Prosthetics provides care to patients with partial or
total absence of limb by designing, fabricating and
fitting the patient with prosthesis or artificial limb to
replace the individual’s functional and cosmetic needs.
The prosthetist takes measurements, selects the
appropriate materials and components and has to make
all necessary modifications to fit the prosthesis to the
patient. He also teaches the patient how to take care
of it for optimal use.
