Purpose: To compare the individual influence of different types of socket designs on the hip's range of motion in transfemoral amputees. Patients and methods: We studied the kinematic parameters of the hip joint for patients with transfemoral amputation under four experimental conditions: without a socket, with a quadrilateral socket, an ischial containment socket, an ischial-ramal containment socket. An opto-electronic system was used to record the movements in the frontal and sagittal planes for a 3D movement analysis. Results: The hip's range of motion is always significantly restricted with the sockets, regardless of their type, compared to the situation without a socket (P<0.05). The adduction and extension movements are the most restricted. The global amplitude (i.e., the sum of all the ranges of motion) is significantly higher for the ischial-ramal containment socket (139.5°) compared to the ischial containment socket (125.4°, P=0.002) and the quadrilateral socket (127.3°, P=0.01). No comparable study exists in the literature, especially for the ischial-ramal containment socket. Conclusion: The ischial-ramal containment socket seems to be the most interesting type of socket in terms of the criterion studied. It still remains to identify the possible functional improvements that this design would provoke during gait and during daily activities. © 2011 Elsevier Masson SAS.

The International Commission on Radiological Protection system of radiological protection is based on three pillars: science, ethical and social values, and experience. As far as ethics and the protection of humans are concerned, the systemcombines the values of beneficence/non-maleficence, prudence, justice, and dignity. Beneficence and non-maleficence are directly related to the aim to prevent deterministic effects and to reduce the risk of stochastic effects. Prudence allows taking into account uncertainties concerning both the deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation on health. Justice is the way to ensure social equity and fairness in decisions related to protection. Over the past decade, the system has also integrated procedural values such as right to know, informed consent, stakeholder involvement and self-help protection, and reflecting the importance to properly inform and also preserve the autonomy and dignity of the individuals potentially or actually exposed to radiation. In practice, the search for reasonable levels of protection and tolerable exposure levels is a permanent questioning that depends on the prevailing circumstances in order to act wisely; i.e., with the desire to do more good than harm (beneficence/non-maleficence), to avoid unnecessary exposure (prudence), to seek fair distribution of exposures (justice), and to treat people with respect (dignity). © 2016 Health Physics Society.

Committee 4 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is responsible for developing principles, recommendations, and guidance on the protection of man against radiation exposure; and considering their practical application in all exposure situations. The Committee also acts as a major point of contact between ICRP and other international organisations and professional bodies concerned with protection against ionising radiation. The current work of the Committee involves the development of a series of reports on implementation of the 2007 Recommendations, and a reflection on the ethical foundations of the radiological protection system. Following the accident in Fukushima, Committee 4 also initiated an analysis of management of the consequences of the accident, with the objective of revising, if necessary, the Commission's publications on emergency and post-accident situations. © 2012.

Committee 4 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is responsible for developing principles, recommendations, and guidance on the protection of people against radiation exposure, and to consider their practical application in all exposure situations. Currently, the Committee’s efforts are focused on the completion of a series of future ICRP publications on the implementation of its 2007 Recommendations to the various existing exposure situations. A report on protection against radon exposure was published recently (ICRP Publication 126), and two documents on protection against cosmic radiation in aviation, and naturally occurring radioactive material are under development. The programme of work for the forthcoming 2013–2017 period comprises the update of ICRP Publication 109 on protection of people in emergency exposure situations, and the update of ICRP Publication 111 on protection of people living in long-term contaminated areas after a nuclear accident, as well as the development of a future ICRP publication on the ethics of radiological protection. It also includes the preparation of task groups on the application of the Commission’s recommendations for contaminated sites from past activities and for surface and near-surface disposal of radioactive waste. Another important task for Committee 4 will be to develop a reflection on the tolerability of risk from radiation. © The International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics Reprints and permissions:

The International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) has a membership of approximately 17,000 individuals who are members of 48 national societies in 60 countries worldwide. As such, IRPA's vision is to be recognised as the international voice of the radiation protection professional. This article will discuss elements of the outcome of the 12th International Congress of IRPA ('Focus on the future'), objectives and current activities of IRPA, criteria and priorities for the engagement of IRPA with international organisations, current IRPA initiatives in the areas of radiation protection culture and certification/qualification of radiation protection experts, planning for the 13th International Congress of IRPA, comments on the implementation of recent recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), and suggestions about IRPA and ICRP collaboration in their implementation.IRPA recognises that ICRP is the international body to determine policy and to make recommendations for protection against ionising radiation, and IRPA is in a position to participate in and facilitate the implementation of those recommendations. © 2012.

This article proposes a review of past and current ICRP publications dealing with the management of radon exposures. Its main objective is to identify and discuss the driving factors that have been used by the Commission during the last 50years so as to better appreciate current issues regarding radon exposure management. The analysis shows that major evolutions took place in very recent years. As far as the management of radon exposures is concerned, ICRP recommended, until ICRP Publication103 (ICRP 2007 ICRP Publication 103; Ann. ICRP 37), to use action levels and to consider only exposures above these levels. The Commission has reviewed its approach and now proposes to manage any radon exposure through the application of the optimisation principle and associated reference levels. As far as the assessment of the radon risk is concerned, it appears that the successive changes made by ICRP did not have a strong impact on the values of radon gas concentration recommended as action levels either in dwellings or in workplaces. The major change occurred in late 2009 with the publication of the ICRP Statement on Radon, which acknowledged that the radon risk has been underestimated by a factor of 2, thus inducing a major revision of radon reference levels. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd.

Questions about quantifying the radiological risk associated with exposure to ionising radiation have been debated repeatedly for a variety of exposure situations, including, among others, medical irradiation, discharges from nuclear facilities, transportation of radioactive waste, and potential nuclear accidents. This paper aims to shed light on the link between exposure and risk, focusing on the items that constitute the detriment associated with this exposure. The management of the risk associated with it relies on a cautious hypothesis of a linear no-threshold relation between exposure and risk of death or detriment. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) published General Recommendations in 1966 that recognised this relation, but did not publish a quantification of the risk until 1977. The Commission introduced the concept of effective dose as a risk indicator that makes it possible to determine dose limits according to the risk associated with them. In 1990, the Commission proposed a revision of the quantification and construction of detriment. New limits, based on risk quantification and, for the first time, risk tolerability, were proposed. The optimisation of radiation protection - keeping radiation exposure as low as reasonably achievable in light of the economic and social context - became the key principle of the radiation protection system. The use of detriment makes it possible to use economic tools to guide the decision process for this optimisation - by assessing the monetary value of human life. This concept, widely used in health economics during the 1980s, has been criticised by many and must be used cautiously. ICRP published the latest quantifications of detriment in 2007. Detriment is thus an indicator that assesses the risk of death associated with exposure to ionising radiation for an average individual. Its construction relies on simplifying assumptions that are needed to implement a robust and effective radiation protection system.

French fashion retailer La Redoute has apologised over an image of a naked man behind a group of children advertising beachwear. Zoom in to the image and you'll see a totally naked man emerging from the sea. The image has been removed from the web site, but the advertisement for children's T-shirts has been captured on YouTube. La Redoute, the largest mail order company in France published an apology to avoid further fall out. "La Redoute apologizes for the photo published on its site and is taking steps to remove it. We have opted to delete all the posts including this picture. "We are aware that it may offend the sensibilities of surfers. We will strengthen the validation process of all brand communications so this can not happen again in the future." "Obviously everyone does not know that we have swimsuits from €9.99" Others have poked fun at the image using Photoshop to add the man to other images on the web. Parody images show the man in the sea with President Sarkozy. He has also appeared with other leaders. Cynics might think that the image went through all photographic and PR checks and was intended to be published like this but La Redoute disagrees. Emmanuelle Picard-Deyme said that 'an inquiry had been launched to determine how the mistake happened'. This could have been an intentional tactic to get more page views. Images of naked people, reflected in shiny objects such as kettles, mirrors and doors used to appear from time to time on auction web sites. These 'Reflectoporn' images became viral and were forwarded widely. Perhaps the man in the background was not even noticed by the editing team. France tends to have a relaxed attitude to nudity. Perhaps no one actually saw the extra person in the background. Whatever the error, it's certainly useful publicity for the online retailer. True to its 'everything is allowed' advertising campaign it may have been a deliberate ploy to drive brand awareness and reach. With the buzz generated on Twitter and Facebook, it certainly seems to have worked.
