Abstract
Prosthetic is an artificial limb that helps an individual with amputation to restore the lost part of the body and neuroskeletomotor function. The existence of prosthetic makes it possible for individual with amputation to perform their daily task and remove the barrier of social participation. An ideal prosthetic usually constitutes characteristic as having the ability of 20° dorsiflexion, 20° eversion movement and 117% energy return efficiency. Prescription of prosthetic is restricted to follow according to amputee’s functional level or K-level. Common prostheses can be classified as socket-suspended or bone-anchored prosthesis where commonly known as osseointegrated prosthesis. In the process of making prosthesis, common materials that are used widely known are metals, polymers, carbon fibers and few other materials such as Kevlar. The cost of prosthesis in nowadays is a very subjective and depending on the type of design, materials and functions. This short review paper is discussing the use of prosthesis leg for human regarding the functional level, cost, materials, challenges, current researches and future recommendations for the research and development of prosthesis leg.
