Prosthetics and Orthotics International is the official journal of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics. The journal is published four times a year and is available free of charge to ISPO members.
Launched in 1977, Prosthetics and Orthotics International is one of the major international scientific publications in the field of prosthetics and orthotics. A multidisciplinary journal, it is aimed at all professionals who have an interest in the medical, clinical, rehabilitation, technical, educational and research aspects of prosthetics, orthotics and rehabilitation engineering, as well as their related topics.
The journal acts as a key vehicle for ISPO’s mission to enhance the quality of life for people with physical disabilities who require improvements in mobility or independence. It publishes review articles, experimental and clinical research papers, case studies, technical notes, reports and book reviews, as well as information about ISPO activities and the outcomes of the ISPO consensus conferences and working groups.
As of January 2011, POI is being published by SAGE Publications under the editorship of Dr. Sarah Curran, Senior Lecturer in Podiatry at the Wales Centre for Podiatric Studies of Cardiff School of Health Sciences.
