Each of the three prostheses described previously has proved to have a very specific role in assisting the rehabilitation. Each system can provide a unique perspective on the potential solution and eventual outcome for each individual amputee. Although circumstances may not permit or necessitate the use of all basic procedures in every case, the use of two orthree of these techniques is almost always possible and indicated.
