thumb_tatcot.jpg Greetings from hot, sunny Tanzania where we are next to Mount Kilimanjaro. We arrived here on Tuesday, November 21 and immediately got to work on setting up the ISB sponsored gait lab in the Tanzanian Training Center for Orthopaedic Technologists. Our primary job was to install two force platforms in the lab.
