Roughly 75 percent of amputations are caused by cardiovascular complication and diabetes. The most ordinary form of amputation is a below-knee amputation. Majority of prosthetics are built with lightweight carbon fiber, titanium and aluminum components. Prosthetic lasts three to five years on average. Every prosthetic is custom-made to each patient individually, taking numerous factors into consideration, such as age, weight, health and lifestyle. Bulk of amputees don a stump shrinker, which is a compaction sock that stops the limb from inflammation when the prosthesis is off of their limb.
