John Michael's Corner Welcome to the intersection of orthotics and prosthetics in cyberspace! This month's Corner includes a video clip and digital stills from an excellent training tape demonstrating use of bilateral upper limb prostheses and a short report summarizing key data from a recent article on the demographics of new amputees. It concludes with a request from a reader for help finding teaching materials in Spanish and the posting of the first segments of on lower limb prosthetics and orthotics that have been translated into the Spanish language.
