About the Author:

Cynthia Cooper, MFA, MA, OTR/L, CHT, Director of Hand Therapy at NovaCare Rehabilitation, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Review:

"This book would be beneficial to both clinicians and students. I find the addition of clinical tips, or ‘pearls’, particularly useful as a quick reference guide. As an academic who teaches functional anatomy to occupational therapists, I find the scenarios particularly useful for helping students see the whole picture rather than just individual muscle actions." Fundamentals of Hand Therapy: January 2010
