Prosthetic & Sensory Aids Service (PSAS)

VA Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service (PSAS)

PSAS is the largest and most comprehensive provider of prosthetic devices and sensory aids in the world.  Although the term "prosthetic device" may suggest images of artificial limbs, it actually refers to any device that supports or replaces a body part or function.

PSAS provides a full range of equipment and services to Veterans.  These range from items worn by the Veteran, such as an artificial limb or hearing aid; those that improve accessibility, such as ramps and vehicle modifications; to devices surgically placed in the Veteran, such as hips and pacemakers.
