Breast Prostheses
Used after a patient has a mastectomy, where the breast is either completely or partially removed.


Upper-extremity prostheses
Used at various levels of amputation. Including forequarter, shoulder disarticulation, transhumeral prosthesis, elbow disarticulation, transradial prosthesis, wrist disarticulation, partial hand. Two main types of prostheses are available.
- Cable Operated Prosthesis work by attaching a harness and cable around the opposite shoulder of the amputated arm.
- Myoelectric Prosthesis. They work by sensing, via electrodes, when the muscles in the upper arm move, causing an artificial hand to open or close.


Lower-extremity prostheses
Used at various levels of amputation. These include hip disarticulation, transfemoral prosthesis, knee disarticulation, transtibial prosthesis, Syme's and partial foot. There are quite a few types of prosthseses available when looking at parts, components and socket types. When talking about suspension there only a few types available:
- Suction Type (a form of suspension through vacuum).
- Pin Liner (suspension by means of a silicone liner and pin connecting to the prosthesis).
- Suspension Belt (a belt that forms a suspension around the waist).
