Lower limb prosthesis (LLP): A device that substitutes for a missing lower extremity (leg). This review is concerned with prostheses that replace the lower extremity after amputation at the hip, above the knee, below the knee, or above the ankle. It does not address "minor" prostheses of portions of the foot only. In addition it does not include implanted prostheses (that are permanently attached to a bone) or orthotic devices (a device used to support or align a joint or body part as opposed to replacing a missing body part).
Ottobock has led the way in lower limb prosthetics since 1919. With focus on clinical outcomes and quality testing, the Ottobock portfolio offers unmatched performance and breadth, all backed by a global network of support.
You can rely on our modular system–a comprehensive selection of knees, feet, and adapters–to fabricate and fit a complete prosthesis that matches your patient’s needs, no matter their level of amputation or activity.

Lower Limb Prosthetics | The Health Science
Recent technological advances have allowed the Vanderbilt engineers to produce a device that weighs about nine pounds – less than most human lower legs – and can operate for three days of normal activity, or 13 to 14 kilometers of continuous walking, on a single charge. They have also dramatically reduced the amount of noise that the latest model makes, although it is slightly louder than they would like.
