New PDF release: An Introduction to Rehabilitation Engineering (Series in

By Rory A Cooper,Hisaichi Ohnabe,Douglas A. Hobson

ISBN-10: 0849372224

ISBN-13: 9780849372223

Answering the common call for for an introductory e-book on rehabilitation engineering (RE), Dr. Rory A. Cooper, a special RE authority, and his esteemed colleagues current An advent to Rehabilitation Engineering. This source introduces the basics and functions of RE and assistive applied sciences (ATs).

After delivering a quick advent, the e-book describes the versions for AT carrier supply, the layout instruments and ideas of common layout, and numerous technology-transfer mechanisms, versions, and rules. The textual content then explains the method for developing assistive equipment criteria, through a evaluate of seating biomechanics and smooth tissue biomechanics. next chapters learn layout and repair supply rules of wheelchairs and scooters, practical electric stimulation and its functions, wheelchair-accessible transportation laws, and the functions of robotics in clinical rehabilitation. The booklet proceeds to debate prosthetic and orthotic layout and utilization, visible and listening to impairment, Web-related AT, and augmentative and replacement verbal exchange (AAC) know-how. It concludes with an creation to adaptive activities and recreation.

Incorporating the severe points of RE and AT, An advent to Rehabilitation Engineering specializes in the foundations, modeling, criteria, units, and applied sciences of RE and AT. It provides a concise but whole evaluate of RE to supply a superb starting place within the topic in addition to to stimulate additional study.
