The aim of this study is to provide information about Paralympians and the importance of their prosthetic devices. Many people today are encouraged to take part in some kind of sport activity, because many studies have shown that these activities have a positive influence on several aspects of one’s life; improving physical health and also self-esteem,but also helps to reduce stress levels, improving concentration and problem-solving skills. A special category of people who are practicing some kind of sport activities are people who have suffered a limb loss or socalled amputation. Most of them having been very active people and practicing sport even before the amputation, have returned to their activities and are still competing in para sport activities. The methods used are interviewing the candidates and as materials we have written a series of questions that were sent to each of them. Working in the field of prosthetics and having the chance to work with such motivated people, we have tried to conclude the importance of using a prosthetic device in such activities.
