Prosthetic Foot/Ankle Mechanisms

This interactive on-line course will guide you through the results of a consensus conference held in April 2005 and sponsored by the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists. The conference of engineers, biomechanists, prosthetists, physical therapists, and physicians set out to examine the body of scientific evidence that supports the clinical prescription and use of prosthetic foot and ankle mechanisms.
