Prosthetics are artificial extensions of the body. They are used to replace body parts that are missing from birth, lost through an injury or disease, or which require removal for medical purposes. Orthotics are orthopedic devices that control, guide, limit and/or immobilize joint or body segment; restrict movement in a given direction; assist some type of movement; reduce forces(weight bearing); aid fractures healing after the removal of a cast; correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movements or reduce pain.
