|Title||Paper, 'Of a luxated shoulder reduced by a newly improved machine' by Mr Becket [William Beckett?]|
|Description||Beckett describes a woman who dislocated her shoulder, which became very stiff. Two attempts to manually reset the shoulder were unsuccessful, so a machine consisting of small brass wheels, a bar, and a 'napkin' was used to reset the shoulder. Beckett then discusses previous methods for resetting shoulders and the reasons for difficulties encountered in these methods.|
Read to the Royal Society on 24 January 1723.
