Three-Dimensional (3-D) Printing: A Cost-Effective Solution for Improving Global Accessibility to Prostheses.

PM R 2015 Dec;7(12):1312-1314

The Arthur S. Abramson Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Jacobi Medical Center, New York, NY.

The lack of access to prostheses is a global problem, partially caused by the high cost associated with the current manufacturing process. Three-dimensional printing is gaining use in the medical field, and one such area is prosthetics. In addition to using cost-effective materials, this technology allows for rapid prototyping, making it an efficient solution for the development of affordable prostheses. If the rehabilitation medicine community embraces this novel technology, we can help alleviate the global disparity of access to prostheses.

Patient safety in the rehabilitation of children with spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, neuromuscular disorders, and amputations.

Phys Med Rehabil Clin N Am 2012 May;23(2):401-22

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Kingsbrook Rehabilitation Institute, 585 Schenectady Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11203, USA.

Pediatric patient safety continues to challenge both pediatricians and pediatric physiatrists. While there is a trend toward developing general patient safety initiatives, there is little research on pediatric patient safety. This article identifies major areas of general safety risk, with a focus on timely diagnosis and care coordination to prevent secondary complications that compromise health, function, and quality of life in pediatric neuromuscular disease, spinal cord disorders, and amputation.
