The Academy provides this regular e-update 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 2013.
Where available, links to freely accessible full text versions of the article are provided. Where only a link to the abstract is provided, the full article may be available for purchase. Results were edited for clinical relevance.

This is a multi-center single-blinded study evaluating the effectiveness of a rigid TLSO for the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The study began as a randomized controlled trial; however, low enrollment in the randomized group caused a shift in the study design to allow patients who chose a specific treatment to be followed and included here. A successful outcome was defined as skeletal maturity without curve progression to 50 degrees or more. The combined group had a success rate of 72% compared to 48% success in the observation group. This study also included data from temperature sensors used to monitor time spent in the orthosis. There was a high correlation of successful outcomes to the time spent in the orthosis. The large disparity between success rates in treatment and observation groups along with the significant dose response to bracing led the researchers to terminate the study early. The researchers concluded that brace wear significantly decreases progression of high-risk curves to the threshold for surgery and that the benefit increased with longer hours of brace wear.
