Did You know there are 3 forms of Prosthetic Designs?
  1.  Passive 

  2.  Mechanical  (Body Powered)

  3. Myoelectric (Externally powered):

Passive: This type of prosthesis can be used for all levels of amputation. It is used primarily to replace the body part that is missing. This promotes a healthy body image, and is also functional in that it can assist the sound side arm in activities such as holding or placing objects.
Mechanical (Body Powered): This prosthesis uses body movements to operate the terminal device (hand or hook.) The prosthesis is connected to the body through the use of cables and harness. Using movements of the shoulders and the arms, the person can open and close the terminal device.
Myoelectric (Externally powered): The Myoelectric uses signals from muscles of the residual limb to control the opening and closing of the terminal device (hook or hand) or elbow depending on the level of amputation. Electrodes are incorporated into the prosthetic socket and by contracting the muscles of the residual limb, electrical signals are sent to the motors which open and close the terminal device (hook or hand) or lift and lower the forearm at the elbow.

5 Important Facts about limb loss

  1. There are nearly 2 million people living with limb loss in the United States.

​   2. Among those living with limb loss, the main causes are vascular disease (54%) – including diabetes and peripheral arterial disease – trauma (45%) and cancer (less than 2%) (1).

   3. Approximately 185,000 amputations occur in the United States each year (2).

   

   4. In 2009, hospital costs associated with amputation totaled more than $8.3 billion (3)

   5. African‐Americans are up to four times more likely to have an amputation than white Americans (4)Nearly half of the individuals who have an amputation due to vascular disease will die within 5 years. This is higher than the five year mortality rates for breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer (5)
