Concentrating our own studies on elevated vacuum suspension, Willow Wood’s research team has published prosthetic journal articles, presented at national trade shows, and served on industry expert panels at national and regional trade shows. For your convenience, an extensive bibliography of articles is provided for elevated vacuum suspension, CAD/CAM and liners.

Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development. A prosthetic limb and bike pedal that allows amputee cyclists to experience a full range of motion has been named as the U. Cadence is a concept by Art Center College of Design student Seth Astle, who wanted to focus on helping below-the-knee amputees.
