The discipline of rehabilitation engineering draws on a wide range
of specialist knowledge, from the biomedical sciences to materials
technology. Rehabilitation Engineering Applied to Mobility and
Manipulation provides broad background and motivational material to
ease readers' introduction to the subject. The book begins with a
wide-ranging yet concise introduction to the legislative,
technological, testing, and design basis of rehabilitation
engineering, followed by the fundamentals of design and materials
and a full account of the biomechanics of rehabilitation. Major
sections of the book are devoted to various aspects of mobility,
including detailed discussion of wheelchair design. Valuable
additional material deals with seating, prosthetic devices,
robotics, and the often-neglected subject of recreational devices
and vehicles. More than a thousand references to the research and
review literature put readers in touch with the leading edge of a
rapidly growing field.
