If you've had your leg, or part of your leg amputated you are most commonly an AKA (above the knee/trans-femoral amputation) or a BKA (below the knee/trans tibial amputation) both legs require a few different methods and less or more steps to make. This instructable will focus on a Below the knee leg because it has the least amount of steps, I will show some various fabrication methods and components along the way.
Sean was born with a birth defect, which caused his right leg not to form properly. At 3 years old, Sean underwent a right below the knee amputation, which would eventually allow him to walk properly with a prosthetic foot.
