ACADEMY NEWS: Two More Resident Papers to be Added to

The Academy

The Academy will be adding two exceptional papers to the Best of the Resident Research Series. THE CURRENT FRACTURE BRACING TREATMENT OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY by Braulia J. Pena-White has been selected by the Research and Development Committee to be sent out to the membership with the next issue of The Academician newsletter.

ADAPTING CURRENT PROSTHETIC STANCE CONTROL KNEE JOINT TECHNOLOGY TO AN ORTHOTIC DEVICE: A PRELIMINARY REPORT by Brandon L. Khoury was also selected for the series and will be added to the Online Publications area of the Academy website (

The Best of the Resident Research Series, a member benefit offered through partnership with NCOPE, chooses from the research papers now completed by residents as a mandatory requirement of the residency program.

Pena-White’s paper provides a well-referenced review of the most commonly used descriptions of fractures and treatment protocol for lower limb fracture bracing.

Khoury’s paper poses the question that since the field of prosthetics has enjoyed stance control knees technology for many years, could it be applied to orthotic treatments? His study compares and contrasts the joint designs and locking mechanics of the currently available stance control knee joints with a prosthetic adaptation.
