  • Need for mechanically and ergonomically enhanced tremor-suppression orthoses for the upper limb: a systematic review. [Review]
  • JNJ Neuroeng Rehabil 2019 Jul 18; 16(1):93
  • Fromme NP, Camenzind M, … Rossi RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: The comparison of tremor-suppression orthoses considered and mapped their various mechanical and ergonomic properties, including the degrees of freedom, weight, suppression characteristics, and efficacies. This review shows that most of the orthoses are bulky and heavy, with a non-adapted human-machine interface which can cause rejection by the user. The main challenge of the design of an effective, minimally intrusive and portable tremor-suppressing orthosis is the integration of compact, powerful, lightweight, and non-cumbersome suppression mechanisms. None of the existing prototypes combine all the desired characteristics. Future research should focus on novel suppression orthoses and mechanisms with compact dimensions and light weight in order to be less cumbersome while giving a good tremor-suppression performance.
  • Bracing in clubfoot: do we know enough? [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Child Orthop 2019 Jun 01; 13(3):258-264
  • Alves C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bracing is essential for preventing clubfoot relapse. Daily duration and length of bracing required to prevent recurrence is still unknown. Prospective randomized clinical trials may bring important data that will influence clinicians' and families' choices regarding bracing.
