Literature Update
March — April 2011

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 March – April 2011.
Results were edited for clinical relevance.
