This is why your prosthetist will ask you about your activities, so they can choose componentry that is safe and effective for your lifestyle. Regardless of your level of amputation; if you are going to use a prosthesis you need to use it regularly to maintain your skills Using a prosthetic limb takes a large amount of energy because you have to compensate for the loss of bone and muscle of the amputated limb. A person fitted with an above knee prosthesis may need to use up to sixty percent more energy to walk. For this reason some people choose not to use a functional prosthesis. If this is the case the option of a ‘cosmetic-only’ prosthesis could be the best choice. shijiazhaung aosuo o&p
