Residual limb volume change: systematic review of measurement and management.
Management of residual limb volume affects decisions regarding timing of fit of the first prosthesis, when a new prosthetic socket is needed, design of a prosthetic socket, and prescription ofExpand

Energy storage and return prostheses: does patient perception correlate with biomechanical analysis?
The development and prescription of energy storage and return prosthetic feet in favor of conventional feet is largely based upon prosthetist and amputee experience. Regretfully, the comparativeExpand

Transtibial energy-storage-and-return prosthetic devices: a review of energy concepts and a proposed nomenclature.
Prosthetic devices that can store and return energy during gait enhance the mobility and functionality of lower-limb amputees. The process of selecting and fitting such devices is complicated, partlyExpand

Tissue response to single-polymer fibers of varying diameters: evaluation of fibrous encapsulation and macrophage density.
An in vivo study was conducted to assess the sensitivity of fibrous capsule thickness and macrophage density to polymer fiber diameter. Single polypropylene fibers of diameters ranging from 2.1 toExpand

Changes in interface pressures and shear stresses over time on trans-tibial amputee subjects ambulating with prosthetic limbs: comparison of diurnal and six-month differences.
For trans-tibial amputees maintenance over time of a quality fit of the prosthesis to the residual limb is an important clinical challenge. The purpose of this research was to compare diurnal andExpand

A noncontact sensor for measurement of distal residual-limb position during walking.
A simple noncontact device was implemented for measuring the position of the distal residual limb relative to the prosthetic socket during ambulation. The device was a small and lightweightExpand

Tissue engineering of perfused microvessels.
One major obstacle toward the creation and survival of larger, three-dimensional tissues is the lack of a vascular network that provides transport of oxygen, nutrients, and metabolic byproducts.Expand

Tissue response to microfibers of different polymers: polyester, polyethylene, polylactic acid, and polyurethane.
Tissue response to single polymer microfibers of polyester (PET), polyethylene (PE), poly(L-lactic acid) (PLA), and polyurethane (PU) was assessed using a rat subcutaneous model. Fibers of diametersExpand
