Products are created by prosthetic limb manufacturers to replace lost limbs and partially restore the abilities of amputees. Although the person's efficiency is improved, these prosthetic feet are not as versatile as the genuine foot. In particular, when it comes to prosthetic feet, choosing a prosthesis depends on how well it mimics the features of a human foot. Prosthetic feet are made to be flexible, long-lasting, corrosion-resistant, tensile strength, rust-resistant, shear-resistant, and cost-effective. The aforementioned factors depend on the characteristics of the material utilized, the layout of the feet, and the production process employed. When the composite is modified in terms of fiber selection, system, kind of combination, mass capacity, and prosthetic architecture, the efficiency of the foot changes. In this paper, a thorough review of the biomechanics, elements, and ideas of the artificial foot has been conducted.
