John Michael's CornerWelcome to the intersection of orthotics and prosthetics in cyberspace!
This month's Corner begins with the third and final report in a series on the World Congress of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics held in Glasgow, Scotland, highlighting lower limb prosthetics. On the domestic front, there is a brief update on Horton's Stance Control Orthotic Knee Joints. Additional chapters from the texts on lower limb prosthetics and orthotics that have been translated into Spanish are posted. This Corner also includes comments about web sites with clinically useful information and a correction to the information in August clarifying that it was the Bauerfeind Group, not Medi, who acquired the German suppliers.

This month's Corner includes the next installment of uploads of chapters from the entire Spanish language texts on Lower Limb Orthoses and Lower Limb Prostheses, for downloading or printing. CPO Services is very pleased to be able to post electronic versions of texts used in the former WHO school in the Dominican Republic, with the kind permission of Sidney Fishman, PhD.
