Orthosis is an external device that is used to improve the structural and functional characteristic of neuromusculoskeletal
system. Depending on patient’s needs orthosis are used either to support or limit
function of joints and muscles. Orthosis may also assist user’s movements. Orthosis are systems
where compatible pieces are put together to create an individual device. Orthopedic shoes and foot
orthosis as well as ankle, knee and wrist supports and corsets are the most common orthosis.
Prosthesis is a device that replaces a missing body part unlike orthosis that only changes function or
structure of the body. Prosthesis is used to replace a body part that is missing since the birth or a
limb that is amputated because of the illness or accident. Prostheses are systems where compatible
pieces are put together to create an individual device.
