Abstract

The Canadian Survey on Disability reported about 3.8 million Canadians between 15 and 64 years lived with a disability in 2012, and more than 80% used an assistive device. Innovation, research, and unrestricted access to knowledge in prosthetics and orthotics is vital to improve a person’s quality of life, removing barriers, and integrating people with functional and mobility limitations into their society. Therefore, this study examined trends in prosthetics and orthotics research in Canada.
