The most comprehensive core text available for clinical science courses in physical therapy - Includes guidelines for pre-prosthetic training programs - Case studies illustrate clinical information
A concise reference for clinicians working with patients in acute care, rehabilitation, long-term care, and home care settings, Orthotics and Prosthetics in Rehabilitation is also intended to be used as a primary textbook for clinical science courses. The first section provides a comprehensive overview of orthotic and prosthetic prescriptions and fabrications, and establishes a firm foundation for gait analysis. The authors have also incorporated principles of motor control and motor learning into orthotic and prosthetic intervention.
The second and third sections are dedicated to orthotics and prosthetics respectively. A general chapter on each type of orthotic (foot, AFO, KO, KAFOs, HKAFOs, spinal) is followed by clinical applications of principles for both special populations and typical patients encountered in rehabilitation. In the prosthetics section, the authors begin with an overview of the epidemiology of amputation, the criteria to determine necessity of prosthetic limbs, and guidelines for pre-prosthetic training programs. Discussion of component options and developing technology for BK and AK prosthesis is followed by an overview of biomechanics and alignment. Principles are applied in clinical case studies based on gait analysis.
