Prosthetic Devices
Prosthetic devices, which act as a replacement for a missing body part, are necessary for people who have had a bad accident or birth defect that has caused them to lose a limb. Intense physical therapy is needed for the patient to get used to the new artificial limb, but provides an invaluable service for each person. Using robotic movements, prosthetics are replacements for missing body extremities, mainly for the arms, hands, knees, legs, and fingers. While the type of artificial limb depends on the severity of the amputation, most are designed the same way, to resemble natural movement. Some people may need to walk with a crutch or a brace until they learn how to function properly with the prosthetic device and incorporate it into their lifestyle. Each orthotic device or implant is custom fit by a medical doctor who specializes in this area. Some doctors focus on pediatric orthotics and implants, while others service a range of patient ages. Doctors get their prosthetic devices and accessories from trusted suppliers. Usually made from a light weight plastic, prosthetic devices can contain mechanic and electrical components. From artificial heart valves to bionic eyes, which are experimental visual devices, replacement limbs can aid people in invaluable ways. This includes assisting them in with simple tasks like walking, grasping, bending, and more. While it may seem like artificial limbs are somewhat new inventions, they can actually be traced pretty far back in history. Back in 500 BC, the body of a man was found with a wooden foot attached, and a copper and wood leg was uncovered in Italy dating back to 300 BC. Things have come far since then, with state-of-the-art medical advances being made in prosthetic device technology every day.
