From the Publisher:

Up-to-date and authoritative, this text covers orthotics and prosthetics in one comprehensive and cohesive source. Whether you are a student or clinician, if you work with patients with neuromuscular and musculoskeletal impairments, you will appreciate the lucid writing and practical applications this book provides. Organized from a functional, rather than a technical, perspective, this text supplies a strong foundational understanding of the field of orthotics and prosthetics that will give you the critical skills you need when working with this unique client population.

Coverage includes comprehensive gait analysis, consideration of energy expenditure, and age-related changes in cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular systems. Consideration of orthotic design and pre-orthotic assessment is followed by descriptions of each major type of lower extremity and spinal orthoses. Special topics include footwear, burn care, fracture management, and upper extremity splinting. The prosthetic section considers the etiology of amputation, care of patients with neuropathy and vascular compromise, and a review of pre-amputation assessment and amputation surgeries.

The combination of practical clinical advice, expert authors, and meticulous attention to detail will make Orthotics and Prosthetics in Rehabilitation the text of choice for the classroom or clinical practice setting.
