Answering the frequent call for for an introductory e-book on rehabilitation engineering (RE), Dr. Rory A. Cooper, a exotic 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 delivering a short advent, the e-book 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 growing assistive gadget criteria, through a assessment of seating biomechanics and gentle tissue biomechanics. next chapters study layout and repair supply rules of wheelchairs and scooters, useful electric stimulation and its functions, wheelchair-accessible transportation laws, and the purposes 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 replacement verbal exchange (AAC) expertise. It concludes with an creation to adaptive activities and recreation.

Incorporating the severe facets of RE and AT, An advent to Rehabilitation Engineering specializes in the rules, modeling, criteria, units, and applied sciences of RE and AT. It provides a concise but whole evaluate of RE to supply an exceptional beginning within the topic in addition to to stimulate additional study.
