Mr. HEATHER BIGG, being conscious that the invention, construction, and application of mechanism for the treatment of deformities are frequently found to be unaccompanied by that
enlarged scientific experience which such a subject requires, has - recently visited the various Orthoj ædic Establishments of Paris,
Vienna, Munich, Stuttgard, Berlin, Dresden, Cannstadt, Frank'fort, de, for the purpose of personally ascertaining what forms of apparatus were especially adopted, and thus enabling him to place at the disposal of the Medical Profession the resulting advantages.
