Boost your skills in planning and managing physical rehabilitation! Neuroscience: Fundamentals for Rehabilitation,5th Edition provides a practical guide to the nervous system and how it affects the practice of physical and occupational therapy. Case studies and first-person stories from people with neurologic disorders make it easier to apply your knowledge to the clinical setting. New to this edition are new chapters on neuroanatomy imaging and neurologic examination techniques. Written by noted PT educator Laurie Lundy-Ekman, this book uses evidence-based research to help you understand neurologic disorders and treat clients who have physical limitations due to nervous system damage or disease.

 

  • Logical, systems approach to neuroscience makes it easier to master complex information and provides a framework for conducting a neurologic examination and evaluation.
  • A clinical perspective of neuroscience is provided through case studies, personal stories written by patients, and summaries of key features of neurologic disorders and the body systems they affect.
  • Five sections — Overview of Neurology, Neuroscience at the Cellular Level, Development of the Nervous System, Vertical Systems, and Regions — first show how neural cells operate, and then allow you to apply your knowledge of neuroscience.
  • Emphasis on topics critical to physical rehabilitation includes coverage of abnormal muscle tone, chronic pain, control of movement, and differential diagnosis of dizziness.
  • Hundreds of color-coded illustrations show body structures and functions across systems.
  • Clinical Notes case studies demonstrate how neuroscience knowledge may be applied to clinical situations.
  • Pathology boxes provide a quick summary of the features of neurologic disorders commonly encountered in rehabilitation practice.

 

  • New! Neuroimaging and Neuroanatomy Atlaschapter includes MRI and CT images.
  • NEW!Neurologic Disorders and the Neurologic Examinationchapter provides detailed descriptions and photographs of techniques.
  • NEW! Diagnostic Clinical Reasoning boxes help you develop the ability to recognize patterns of signs and symptoms associated with specific diagnoses.
  • NEW! Updated content reflects the most current research findings.
  • NEW! Reader-friendly approach converts long, technical chapters into smaller, more accessible chapters.
  • NEW! Reorganized chapters progress from the cellular view to the systems view to the regional view.

[BOOK] Serious Games in Physical Rehabilitation: From Theory to Practice – Google Books

Front Cover
SpringerOct 30, 2017 – Medical – 146 pages

Marketing text: This innovative book explores how games can be serious, even though most people generally associate them with entertainment and fun. It demonstrates how videogames can be a valuable tool in clinics and demonstrates how clinicians can use them in physical rehabilitation for various pathologies. It also describes step by step their integration in rehabilitation, from the (gaming) technology used to its application in clinics. Further, drawing on an extensive literature review, it discusses the pros and cons of videogames and how they can help overcome certain obstacles to rehabilitation.

The last part of the book examines the main challenges and barriers that still need to be addressed to increase and improve the use and efficacy of this new technology for patients. The book is intended for physiotherapists and clinicians alike, providing a useful tool for all those seeking a comprehensive overview of the field of serious games and considering adding it to conventional rehabilitation treatment.

[BOOK] Rehabilitation for the Unwanted: Patients and Their Caretakers – Βιβλία Google

 

Routledge29 Σεπ 2017 – 242 σελίδες
This book is a study detailing what happens to people and what life is like in a rehabilitation program. The program discussed is embedded in an institution, called “”Farewell Hospital”” by the authors, that was designed to fill a demand for facilities for those judged unable to live on their own. Due to physical or mental handicaps and no family, friends, or other social agents who are willing to make a home for them outside of a public institution, these patients were placed in a rehabilitation unit.Most patients were placed with the rehabilitation unit as a brief interlude before their permanent placement in the custodial unit of the vast institution where they would live out their lives. This work deals with the question of what happens to patients once they are rehabilitated and the non-therapeutic rules and practices of the health and welfare structure of which they are a part. In this case, the rehabilitation specialists and ward workers set themselves the task of improving the life chances of their clients by treating their ailments when possible and by improving their physical functioning so that they were better able to care for their own needs.The authors examine the effects of the organizational relationships on rehabilitation outcomes and on the lives of the people who make hospitals their home. The text attempts to sustain feeling for the historical context of their study the “”problem”” of larger numbers of disabled, poverty-stricken persons, who are no longer wanted by anyone and asserts that a “”solution”” must be found.

[BOOK] Virtual Reality for Physical and Motor Rehabilitation – Google Books

Virtual Reality for Physical and Motor Rehabilitation

Front Cover

SpringerJul 24, 2014 – Medical – 232 pages

While virtual reality (VR) has influenced fields as varied as gaming, archaeology, and the visual arts, some of its most promising applications come from the health sector. Particularly encouraging are the many uses of VR in supporting the recovery of motor skills following accident or illness.

Virtual Reality for Physical and Motor Rehabilitation reviews two decades of progress and anticipates advances to come. It offers current research on the capacity of VR to evaluate, address, and reduce motor skill limitations, and the use of VR to support motor and sensorimotor function, from the most basic to the most sophisticated skill levels. Expert scientists and clinicians explain how the brain organizes motor behavior, relate therapeutic objectives to client goals, and differentiate among VR platforms in engaging the production of movement and balance. On the practical side, contributors demonstrate that VR complements existing therapies across various conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. Included among the topics:

  • Neuroplasticity and virtual reality.
  • Vision and perception in virtual reality.
  • Sensorimotor recalibration in virtual environments.
  • Rehabilitative applications using VR for residual impairments following stroke.
  • VR reveals mechanisms of balance and locomotor impairments.
  • Applications of VR technologies for childhood disabilities.

A resource of great immediate and future utility, Virtual Reality for Physical and Motor Rehabilitation distills a dynamic field to aid the work of neuropsychologists, rehabilitation specialists (including physical, speech, vocational, and occupational therapists), and neurologists.

Full StrideAdvancing the State of the Art in Lower Extremity Gait Systems

Front Cover
Victoria TepeCharles M. Peterson
SpringerSep 22, 2017 – Medical – 244 pages
This ground-breaking title begins with an introductory overview of the Lower Extremity Gait Systems (LEGS) project, identifying concerns and observations as context for the reader to consider topics and challenges detailed in later chapters. Next are chapters that explore relevant military and civilian needs, and an essential historical context of the capabilities and limitations of contemporary prosthetics. The section concludes with an overview of essential components used in passive and active lower limb prosthetics, including sockets, foot, ankle, and knee systems, as well as emerging bionic systems. A second section considers research and development in orthotics, synthetic and biological materials, volitional control, and wearable robotics (also known as exoskeletons). Finally, expert authors explore advanced science and emerging medical perspectives in research related to limb salvage, osseointegration, limb transplantation, and tissue engineering. Designed for medical practitioners, engineers, students, and researchers who use or develop prosthetic technology for civilian or military amputees, Full Stride: Advancing the State of the Art in Lower Extremity Gait Systems will be of great interest to trauma specialists, orthopedists, rehabilitation specialists, nursing staff and physical therapists, as well as researchers and scientists who specialize in fields that shape and inform advanced prosthetic device development such as materials sciences, engineering (electrical, mechanical, biomedical), robotics, and human physiology.
