The NHS estimates that over 6,000 major limb amputations are suffered each year in the UK.

The physical consequences of amputations can be devastating, causing a person to lose the ability to complete simple tasks around the home, continue employment or, in some circumstances, lead an independent life. These potentially extreme changes in an injured person’s overall capability means it can be a challenging time for them and their loved ones, both financially and emotionally.

Within serious physical injuries, amputations can often have the most severe, life-changing psychological impact due to the emotionally traumatic nature of many amputations as well as the actual loss of a body part they have always had, which causes many amputees to feel a sense of grief and bereavement.

After an amputation, an artificial or prosthetic limb may be able to replicate the role of the lost limb, whether it is a hand, arm or leg. It can be a very difficult and challenging process to become fully used to using a prosthetic limb, but they have become increasingly effective in the performance of their functions thanks to scientific and mechanical developments in thisarea.
