    Description

    Prosthetics to Orthotics: Transferable
    Expertise?

    Research on prosthetics goes back centuries. Orthotics
    are similar, yet uniquely different; they act parallel to
    the impaired limb instead of replacing it. Hence orthotics
    present control challenges and opportunities of a different
    nature compared to prosthetics. Nevertheless, we believe
    that orthotic research and development can greatly benefit
    from the invaluable knowledge that has been gathered over
    the past years in the field of orthotics. For this reason we
    organized the symbosium entitled ”Prosthetics to Orthotics:
    Transferable Expertise?” hosted at International Society of
    Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK) 2016 congress
    in Chicago, on the 8th of July 2016. During the symposium,
    we held an evidence-based discussion between experts in
    prosthetics.
