Prosthetics refers to; "a device, either external or implanted, that substitutes for or supplements a missing or defective part of the body." [1]

Prosthetics or a prosthesis can take many forms, ranging from Teeth implants to artificial limbs. These may be referred to as more traditional prosthetics.

Prosthetics are seen as a key component in Transhumanism, allowing people to overcome either birth defects, injuries or wear and tear on the body.
