Published Work

Chris Lake and the team at Lake Prosthetics and Research are committed to advancing the field of prosthetics for the benefit of all amputees.

One way we serve this mission is through our contributions to upper-limb scientific literature. By publishing our research and experiences in the field of upper-limb prosthetics, this leads to improvements in technology and also provides peer-reviewed rationale for fitting techniques and componentry.
