What is a prosthesis used for?

In general, prosthetic devices are used to replaceĀ  amputees' missing limbs so that they may perform regular daily tasks easier, helping them gain more independence and confidence as they carry on everyday life.

The availability of modern technology has made it possible for prosthetic devices to perform almost any task - from relatively simple artificial teeth used for dental implants to specially designed and manufactured artificial limbs for sports such as running/sprinting.
