Lower Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics: Clinical Concepts is a comprehensive overview of lower limb prosthetics and orthotics, covering normal and pathological gait, lower limb biomechanics, clinical applications, as well as prosthetics and orthotic design and components.
Joan Edelstein and Alex Moroz have written Lower Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics with the clinician’s perspective in mind. Clinical management is incorporated throughout the text, including basic surgical concepts, postoperative management, and preprosthetic care. Additionally, this text incorporates unique features relevant to physicians such as prescription writing and prosthetic and orthotic construction and modification, as well as, the latest research regarding energy consumption and long-term utilization of prostheses.
