January 2013

This regular e-update is provided by the Academy to raise awareness of current research in orthotics and prosthetics published outside of the Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics (JPO).

The list below is the result of a search for articles including the terms "orthotic devices" and "artificial limbs" indexed October – December 2012.
Where available, links to freely accessible full text versions of the article are provided. Where a link to the abstract only is provided, the full article may be available for purchase. Results were edited for clinical relevance.

Meier et al. evaluated 12 individuals time and movement efficiency using Total Heart Beat Index (THBI) over an obstacle course featuring assorted terrains. The individuals wore one of three prosthetic knees: the C-Leg, 3R60, or CaTech SNS. Neither hypothesis posed by the authors—that wearers of the C-Leg would have the best obstacle course performance and that C-Leg wearers would have the highest movement efficiency (lowest THBI)—was supported by the results of the study. Wearers of the C-Leg were found to have a higher THBI, or lower movement efficiency, with the mental loading task compared to non-mental loading task. Researchers documented three falls on the simulated sand section of the obstacle course, two with the C-Leg and one with the 3R60.
