Literature Update
May — June 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 May – June 2011.
Results were edited for clinical relevance.

The full text of this article is
available for free.

The Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio describes the current need for improved high activity AFOs following limb salvage procedures. The featured article describes the process CFI has implemented to improve outcomes in patients with limb salvage procedures following trauma, potentially reducing the number of elective amputations.
