Brace therapy for osteoarthrisis, legal issues in TBI research, prosthetic fitting

The current issue of the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD) covers an array of rehabilitation research from legal and ethical issues relevant to traumatic brain injury research to patient satisfaction and use of braces in treating osteoarthritis to a new liner classification system that will improve the fit of prosthetic limbs. Abstracts from the Third International Conference on Restoration of (wheeled) Mobility in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Rehabilitation are available on-line only. The conference highlights research on manual wheelchair propulsion, orthotics and FES-supported gait, and mobility-related secondary health problems that will help extend treatment and prognosis of SCI rehabilitation. Full-text manuscripts are available, free of charge, on-line at www.vard.org.

Advance in the development of a retinal prosthesis to restore vision, pg 113
Article discusses an important step in developing a retinal prosthesis to restore vision to persons with age-related macular degeneration. Investigators studied 15 rabbit eyes to determine how quickly the retina recovers following surgical implantation of a prosthesis and stimulation of the retina. Retina responsiveness to the optic nerve declined and nerve tissue response slowed following retinal implantation and stimulation. Many of these changes lasted 90 minutes postsurgery. Failure to consider a temporary, below-normal response of the retina to surgery and stimulation could lead to a false conclusion that an implanted prosthesis is not adequately stimulating the retina.

Pitch-match range more appropriate in diagnosing tinnitus, pg 121
In this article, investigators discuss a uniform method to accurately and reliably quantify the phantom sensation of tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Forty-two volunteers with chronic tinnitus each performed three pitch-match
