Literature Update — January/February 2010
This regular e-update is provided by the Academy to raise awareness of current research in orthotics and prosthetics outside of the Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics (JPO).
Search terms used were "orthotic devices" and "artificial limbs"
for the period of January – February 2010.
Results were edited for clinical relevance.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) published their Annual Conference on Engineering in Medicine and Biology this month, see the numerous articles from this event: IEEE has many different societies which potentially publish information relevant to prosthetics and orthotics.
