Thereare several ways in which the motor learning is linked to sensoryprocesses. Consequently, it is influenced by auditory, visual, andtactile inputs. Both motor learning and sensory inputs involve thecentral nervous system and other neurological structures. Theyparticipate in regulating or defining the relationship between thebody and the environment. However, the inputs are processed indifferent parts of the brain. They have an influence on theacquisition of motor skills. For example, the visual functiondetermines the coordination between hands and eyes during movementsor execution of basic occupational tasks. In addition to integratingwhat the patient can see, tactile input creates a perception ofobjects involved (Rachael & Sean, 2015). This means that ifvisual and physical senses are not coordinated with the motorprocesses, manipulation of objects will be impossible. Nonetheless,these functions complement each other. For instance, while movementsof the hands are possible, the sensory and auditory organs cannotmove. However, through the acquisition of motor skills, the differentfunctions are integrated to enable individuals to have a comfortablelife. They all form a spatial map in the CNS, which influence motorabilities (Rachael & Sean, 2015).
Prosthesisequipment is an artificial device that can be used to replace a bodypart. They are utilized in cases where the natural organs are lost oras a result of congenital conditions. A prosthesis limb costs between15,000 dollars and 90, 000 dollars. Due to advancement in medicaltechnology, they have the ability to restore the physical abilitiesof the body fully. Consequently, they are the most appropriatetherapeutic solutions to amputations of lower or upper limbs. Forexample, it enables individuals to participate in rigorous andphysically demanding occupations such as athletics and militaryservice (Smit et al., 2012).
