Prostheses are advisable in early infancy only if they allow a deformation to be corrected (congenital luxation) or if they restore functionality to a stump that the child does not use, or uses badly.
The prosthesis must therefore be gradually adapted, to allow the young wearer to become accustomed to it and confident in its use. When school age is reached, the child may often experience relational difficulties with peers…
…which could lead to problems of a psychological nature. In this case, the prosthesis can be a great help in social integration.
In the case of agenesis, it is preferable to allow the child to develop his or her manual skills with the disability.
