Archives Index and Summary of Contents for Capabilities 1991 – 2013

The free quarterly publication, Capabilities, was issued as a mailed, hard copy publication for 22 years from 1991 through 2013 by the Northwestern University Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (NURERC) for Prosthetics and Orthotics. Under the RERC, Capabilities was funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the U. S. Department of Education. NIDRR grants that supported the publication of Capabilities were: Grant H133E80013 (1988-1993); Grant H133E30007 (1993 through 1998); Grant H133E980023 (October 1, 1998 through September 30, 2003); Grant H133E030030 (October 1, 2003 through September 30, 2008); and Grant H133E080009 (October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2013). The opinions expressed in these publications are those of the grantee and do not necessarily reflect those of the Department of Education.

From 1991 through 2013, Capabilities was available by mail and on the internet to individuals and institutions who are interested in Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O). From 2014, due to a change in funding, Capabilities is available only in PDF format and may be downloaded and printed from the NUPOC web site.

Capabilities provides information about research and education activities conducted at the Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Center (NUPOC). Clinicians, manufacturers, consumers, and fellow investigators who are involved in P&O can access articles about the research, presentations, publications, and other activities conducted at NUPOC.
