dc.description.abstract Osseointegration has been used for prosthetic fixation since nineteen sixties. It is for example used in the dental and maxillofacial science. In 1990 started the osseointegration (OI) programme for upper extremity in Sweden. The treatment involves two surgical procedures and results in bone anchorage attachment of prosthesis. On upper limb has this method been used for transhumeral- (TH), trans-radial (TR), thumb- and partial hand amputation. The method is also used for lower limb amputee. Several papers and presentations in this topic have been presented at conferences and journals over the years. The aim of this presentation is to show some of the differences of an OI prosthesis compared to socket prosthesis. Procedures, constructions/fabrication, and function parameters will be lift up and how does OI effect on the Prosthetists role.
