This is a response to Nixdorf's letter regarding our published article.
1The reader asserts that our study “does not appear to have followed the reported protocol for the research, as published by the funding agency, the National Foundation of Alternative Medicine.” The reader noted that the noninvasive limb cover, Farabloc, is customarily laminated into the prosthesis to “avoid uneven material worn over a limb, which could cause pressure spots and pain when inserted into a prosthesis.” Because our study cut a hole in the limb cover in order to fit over the prosthesis, the reader believes that this “might compromise the integrity of the cover … and the reported data and its conclusion are likely not reliable.”
