Modern limbs include electric arms which use a small battery, others controlled by a tiny switch, and the myoelectric prostheses which use electrical impulses detected by small electrodes placed on the skin over the remaining arm muscles.
Artificial legs can be fitted with spring-loaded feet, artificial feet constructed with toes, synthetic coverings made to match skin tone and hair patterns, and electrodes in the artificial limb leading to the natural skin which allows the brain to register "feeling" in the prosthesis.
