Orthotics and Prosthetics in Rehabilitation is a physical therapy based book, in its second edition. It attempts to provide all the essential information required to make accurate judgements about orthotic/prosthetic prescription and fabrication to give readers a foundation for gait assessment, both pre- and post-intervention.

Separate chapters cover each type of orthotic followed by clinical applications for typical and special populations, while the section on prosthetics provides an overview of the epidemiology of amputation and the criteria the physical therapist needs in order to determine the necessity for prosthetic limbs.
