Prosthetics & Orthotics International Editor Notes NUPOC Research

From What the Editor Is Reading: "A series of articles by Stefania Fatone and her co-workers at Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Centre describes the work they have done to develop a new brimless socket and to teach clinicians to fit the new socket to patients. A paper by Fatone and Caldwell (2017) in the current issue of Prosthetics and Orthotics International (Vol 41, Issue 3) describes gait biomechanics in two subjects using this socket and demonstrates excellent gait function for the brimless socket."
