Book recommendation - Upper Limb Amputation and Prosthetics issues [review]

Reference: Smith DG et al. (2004) Atlas of Amputations and Limb Deficiencies, 3rd edition. Publisher: American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Board of Directors, Rosemont, IL, USA.

This is by far the most informative and to the point book I have seen in the last two years.

Not only are cineplastic options described, but socket issues, body powered prostheses, components, myoelectric parts and a lot more are covered in good detail. The book also is very well referenced so for anyone trying to find good ways out of a tricky situation, to get good advice about prosthetic setups, this is the book to go for.
