Literature Update — May/June 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 May – June 2010.
Results were edited for clinical relevance.

The full text of this article is
available for free.

This is one of a relatively few studies comparing the differences in different types of orthotic interventions. This area of research may ultimately influence clinical decision making. This article describes a 91 subject study comparing laterally wedged leather and cork custom insoles to a valgus knee brace (MOS Genu; Bauerfeind ) in the treatment of medial knee osteoarthritis.

The individual article format and availability
(either full text or abstract form) is at the discretion of the article's respective publisher.
