Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joy Hammel, PhD, OTR, FAOTA (Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This book offers an introductory overview of the assistive technology (AT) service delivery process within the context of seating, positioning, mobility, access, augmentative communication, and environmental control.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide therapists and practitioners with a guide for learning the basics of AT, some of the available options, the decision-making process when delivering AT, and methods for keeping current.
Audience: This book is intended for rehabilitation professionals who work in areas in which assistive technology may be relevant and needed. Clinicians, including occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, are the target audience, especially those who are seeking an introduction to AT.
Features: Chapters are short and contain concise, compact introductions to topic areas. The use of the table of contents, visual flowcharts, illustrations, bulleted checklists, and summary resource tables guided me through the content and helped to highlight important points. The case studies helped me to apply the information to specific clients of various ages representing different levels of function and AT needs.
Assessment: This book provides an excellent introduction to ATand its applications. I found the book to be organized, concise, accurate, and easy to follow and understand. I would recommend this book as a good starting point for students and practitioners who are seeking a nonthreatening introduction to AT.

Contains papers from the summer 1995 symposium on signal transduction in normal and diseased myocardium. Covers areas of rapid development including agonist-receptor and receptor G-protein effector coupling, generation of second messengers, cross-talk between various signalling pathways, and regulation of hypertrophic and hyperplastic cell growth. A final section provides an update on cardiovascular therapy based on interference with intra- and extracellular signalling in the cardiovascular system. For scientists and clinicians interested in the mechanisms by which external signals are transmitted to the interior of cells and the regulation of physiological, pathological, and pharmacological responses.
