Prosthetic options for lower body half

I have a friend whose lower body half (below hips) stopped growing at the age of 10 after he suffered a polio attack. No further complications after that.

Wanted to know what type of prosthetic options are possible for him to be able to walk.

He used to use full length crutches strapped around waist. But could not sustain as it was very strenuous.

Will provide whatever further details necessary.
