Answering the frequent call for for an introductory publication on rehabilitation engineering (RE), Dr. Rory A. Cooper, a unique RE authority, and his esteemed colleagues current An creation to Rehabilitation Engineering. This source introduces the basics and purposes of RE and assistive applied sciences (ATs).

After offering a short creation, the e-book describes the versions for AT carrier supply, the layout instruments and rules of common layout, and diverse technology-transfer mechanisms, types, and rules. The textual content then explains the method for growing assistive equipment criteria, by means of a assessment of seating biomechanics and smooth tissue biomechanics. next chapters study layout and repair supply rules of wheelchairs and scooters, sensible electric stimulation and its purposes, wheelchair-accessible transportation laws, and the functions of robotics in scientific rehabilitation. The booklet proceeds to debate prosthetic and orthotic layout and utilization, visible and listening to impairment, Web-related AT, and augmentative and substitute conversation (AAC) know-how. It concludes with an creation to adaptive activities and recreation.

Incorporating the serious elements 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 provides a concise but entire evaluate of RE to supply an exceptional starting place within the topic in addition to to stimulate extra research.
