Biomechanics of Lower Limb Prosthetics by Mark R. Pitkin

By Mark R. Pitkin

Foreword from a medical Biomechanist, utilized Physiologist and Prosthetist instructing graduate scholars in Prosthetics & Orthotics. whereas there are numerous books on Biomechanics, arguably the indispensable technology of limb prosthetics, none addresses the basic rules in enough element and intensity to be essentially worthy to the prosthetist, rehabilitation professional or researcher. Dr. Pitkin’s monograph is an exemplary choice of theoretical ideas from his examine and o- ers, awarded in its scientific and utilized biomechanics shape. The textbook presents an exceptional review of the numerous elements of decrease limb prosthetic layout and engineering for the ardent clinician researcher and scholar. The ebook delves into a few of the simple strategies which are required wisdom for the clinician and the scientist to have because the beginning for his or her paintings. Dr. Pitkin has an e- quent demeanour within which he displays at the background and literature to inform the storied evolution of prosthetic layout . he is taking the reader on a trip to think about his theories, that have important foundations to think about. by way of the tip of bankruptcy one, we've the fundamental h- tory and an appreciation for the reason at the back of the “rolling joint ankle” with proof to help his theoretical views.
