Dear AJPM&R readers,
In this, the last issue of Volume 92 of the AJPM&R, we have included articles that, once again, illustrate the incredible diversity of the scientific work that is needed in rehabilitation. The use of technology to enhance outcomes is studied in three reports including a randomized controlled trial of tele-rehabilitation addressing a very important public health problem: weight management in people with disabilities. In addition, a pilot study using virtual reality to test the effectiveness of a sailing simulator as a training tool begins on page 1104. Finally, three manuscripts, including a literature review, discuss gait-associated problems while focusing on different populations (post-hip arthroplasty, elderly, amputees).
