Assistive technology used for functional independence and to overcome barriers. Assistive devices consists TENS unit, residual limb covers, laser system, prosthesis. It is used to restore function in patient with complete or partial loss of limb. Patient face complications such as phantom limb pain, residual limb, malfunction of prosthesis and stump pain. There are many components of prosthesis [3] Prosthetic rehabilitation is a best treatment to provide normal appearance and to provide function of missing part.
