    The book is written and edited by a highly professional group from the University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center. It is a much needed source of information, reflecting the clinical experience of the authors and the state of the art in the field. The appearing novel technologies create a challenge for optimal selection of the components and approaches to prosthetic rehabilitation for a specific person with amputation. That is possible, as the authors demonstrate, by detailed analysis of anatomical and physiological conditions of the patient (Parts I-II). Return to the society as a valuable member is a primer psychosocial outcome of the rehabilitation independent on the severity of disability (Parts III-IV). Looking to the future, the authors give a perspective of the new development, including robotic approach (Part V). This is a valuable book for specialists and for amputee patients and their families.
