Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modeling and Musculoskeletal Injuries, Second EditionThere is already a wealth of literature covering cumulative trauma disorders and medical management, as well as the biomechanics of manual material handling and lower back problems. However, despite a spike in the number of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) in the upper limbs―due to a sharp increase in the amount of computer-related jobs―few if any books have focused exclusively on WRMSDs, until now. Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modeling and Musculoskeletal Injur…

Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modeling, and Musculoskeletal InjuriesThe repetitive tasks of various forms of manual work can lead to cumulative trauma disorders, increasing staff burn-out rates and the number of sick-days taken by employees. In addition, interest in upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders has grown as the service sector has claimed a larger share of the workforce. These factors introduce the need for an up-to-date text that combines basic biomechanics with practical bioengineering issues. Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modeling, a…

Management of Upper Limb HypertonicityManagement of Upper Limb Hypertonicity provides a valuable method of clinical decision making to help physical therapists and occupational therapists assess the needs of their clients and choose the best possible interventions. This insightful, 300-page professional resource incorporates current theoretical knowledge with practical techniques to provide the clinician with a way of approaching management of upper limb function in people with neurological damage. The authors, Jodie Copley and Kat…

Emerging Therapies in Neurorehabilitation (Biosystems & Biorobotics)This book reports on the latest technological and clinical advances in the field of neurorehabilitation. It is, however, much more than a conventional survey of the state-of-the-art in neurorehabilitation technologies and therapies. It was formed on the basis of a week of lively discussions between curious PhD students and leading research experts during the summer school on neurorehabilitation (SSNR2012), September 16-21 in Nuévalos, Zaragoza (Spain). Its unconventional format makes it a perfe…
