Press release from: Medical Device By CMI

Artificial devices used to replace missing limbs lost due to birth defect or amputation are called prosthetics.Aprt from birth defects, various medical conditions such as circulation problems, traumatic injuries, cancer, and diabetes can lead to amputation of limbs. The prosthetic leg helps carry out the basic functions of supporting the body and helps the person with body movement to perform daily activities.
Due to the technological advancements, more comfortable and functional prosthetic legs such as carbon fiber prosthetics are available in market. These help the wearer perform otherwise arduous task such as swimming, sky diving, complete triathlons, marathons, etc.
However, sometimes prosthetic legs need to be replaced because of reasons such as increase/decrease in body weight, increase in height—in case of children—incorrect size of socket, material defects such as cracking, stretching or shrinking of material, and incompatibility with the body.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2012, there were around 1.9 million people in the U.S. without natural limbs. Also, according to the stats released by Advanced Amputee Solutions, LLC—a medical device company, specializing in the innovation, research and development of amputee specific devices—major cause of limb loss is vascular disease, which contributes around 54% in overall limb loss. Peripheral arterial disease and trauma is the second-leading cause of limb loss, contributing around 45%, while cancer is the minor cause of limb loss which contributes only around 1-2% of overall limb loss.
Advanced Amputee Solutions, LLC study suggests that below knee amputations are more common and accounted around 71% of dysvascular amputations in 2010 and is expected to increase in near future. Furthermore, globally there are more than 1 million annual limb amputations performed which is around one every 30 seconds.
