Outgrowth: Anticipate having to replace the prosthesis in a child at least annually up to the age of about 12-14 in girls, 14-16 in boys. The younger the child, the more often the prosthesis will require resizing. This can be quite expensive and so if possible, get a detachable foot plate, which may be used for a couple of boot stump changes.
