ISBN-13: 9780849372223

Answering the frequent call for for an introductory ebook 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 purposes of RE and assistive applied sciences (ATs).

After offering a quick advent, the ebook describes the versions for AT provider supply, the layout instruments and ideas of common layout, and numerous technology-transfer mechanisms, types, and rules. The textual content then explains the method for developing assistive gadget criteria, via a assessment of seating biomechanics and smooth tissue biomechanics. next chapters study layout and repair supply ideas of wheelchairs and scooters, sensible electric stimulation and its functions, wheelchair-accessible transportation laws, and the functions of robotics in clinical rehabilitation. The ebook proceeds to debate prosthetic and orthotic layout and utilization, visible and listening to impairment, Web-related AT, and augmentative and substitute conversation (AAC) expertise. It concludes with an creation to adaptive activities and recreation.

Incorporating the serious facets of RE and AT, An creation to Rehabilitation Engineering makes a speciality of the rules, modeling, criteria, units, and applied sciences of RE and AT. It offers a concise but whole review of RE to supply a great origin within the topic in addition to to stimulate extra study.
