A brief summary of the historical development of artificial limbs is followed by a detailed history of the below-knee prostheses worn by the author. Next, the development of a method of obtaining a precision, weight bearing impression of an amputation stump using a low exotherm, two-component froth foam, with a method of evaluating a prosthesis socket made from said impression, is given. Finally, some experimental research into the design of an inexpensive, miniature transducer for measuring localized pressure between the amputation stump and the prosthesis socket is discussed.

Analyzing the Effects of Source Selection Method, Acquisition Type, and Service Component on Acquisition Outcomes Landale, Karen A. F.; Rendon, Rene G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-03); SYM-AM-17-043For years, one of the most hotly contested debates in contracting and acquisition has been the choice of source selection method and the contract-related consequences of that choice. While policy memos encourage contracting ...
